Abstract

Antiretroviral therapies significantly improved morbidity and mortality of HIV-infected people. However, regimens are complex to be taken and in the last years adherence to drugs has been raised as a crucial factor for therapeutical efficacy. The narrative medicine is a developing approach to complement information obtained by traditional measures on health status. Our objective has been to investigate through the narrative-based medicine approach patterns of non-adherence and reasons for suboptimal adherence. This information may help to design intervention strategies aimed to improve adherence to antiretroviral drugs.
