Challenges in the Management of the HIV Patient in the Third Decade of AIDS The epidemic of AIDS has been increasingly recognized as a major health and socioeconomic problem, not only in the United States or Africa, but also the rest of the world. The face of the epidemic has changed. The role that mental health providers play has also significantly grown as the epidemic continues on. Prior to the introduction of Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy (HAART) and other advances in HIV care, the patients faced issues that related to death and dying. These advances brought with them renewed hope and resurrected lives. The patients fought with issues related to living new lives with HIV no longer an imminent death threat. In the third decade of AIDS, the struggles of the post-HAART era continue but bring with it more challenges.

Abstract

The epidemic of AIDS has been increasingly recognized as a major health and socioeconomic problem, not only in the United States or Africa, but also the rest of the world. The face of the epidemic has changed. The role that mental health providers play has also significantly grown as the epidemic continues on. Prior to the introduction of Highly Active Anti-Retroviral Therapy (HAART) and other advances in HIV care, the patients faced issues that related to death and dying. These advances brought with them renewed hope and resurrected lives. The patients fought with issues related to living new lives with HIV no longer an imminent death threat. In the third decade of AIDS, the struggles of the post-HAART era continue but bring with it more challenges. Mental health providers need to familiarize themselves with these issues so that they can better help HIV patients cope with this devastating disease.
