HIV and Quality of Life Factsheet

Quality of life (QoL) is an essential issue for all people, regardless of whether they are living with HIV or not. This factsheet is intended to be used as a good practice guide for STOPAIDS members and the wider international development sector.

The paper takes a whole-life-course approach and highlights best-practice case studies from across the STOPAIDS membership. Within this paper, we explore:

  • What QoL is and what it means for people living with HIV;
  • Provides a summary of key components of initiatives and considerations for their design;
  • Highlights gaps in QoL initiatives; and
  • Concludes with recommendations for all stakeholders in the HIV response.
