The aim of the present study is to see relationship between quality of life and suicidal ideation HlV/AlDS patients. Human Immunodeficiency Virus/ Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a global health problem which has brought new dimensions to some of the already complex issues threatening India. We all know the impact HIV/AIDS has had on the World, but what people don't realize is the impact it is having on other serious health issues in the country. Quality of life is a phrase used to refer to an individual's total well-being. Suicidality may be the direct physiological result of HIV (e.g., owing to the impact of HIV in the brain), a reaction to chronic pain, an emotional reaction to having a chronic and life-threatening illness (e.g., major depression as a result of physical illness or psychiatric side effects caused by medications used to treat HIV infection&associated co morbidities). Many events may trigger suicidal thoughts among people with HIV The sample size of the study is 100 HIV/AIDS patients and the tools used for assessing the variables are WHO quality of life (WHOOL-BRIEF) and Scale of Suicidal Ideation (Beck, 1979). All the domains of quality of life had no significant relationship with suicidal ideation.

Abstract


The aim of the present study is to see relationship between quality of life and suicidal ideation HlV/AlDS patients. Human Immunodeficiency Virus/ Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a global health problem which has brought new dimensions to some of the already complex issues threatening India. We all know the impact HIV/AIDS has had on the World, but what people don't realize is the impact it is having on other serious health issues in the country. Quality of life is a phrase used to refer to an individual's total well-being. Suicidality may be the direct physiological result of HIV (e.g., owing to the impact of HIV in the brain), a reaction to chronic pain, an emotional reaction to having a chronic and life-threatening illness (e.g., major depression as a result of physical illness or psychiatric side effects caused by medications used to treat HIV infection&associated co morbidities). Many events may trigger suicidal thoughts among people with HIV The sample size of the study is 100 HIV/AIDS patients and the tools used for assessing the variables are WHO quality of life (WHOOL-BRIEF) and Scale of Suicidal Ideation (Beck, 1979). All the domains of quality of life had no significant relationship with suicidal ideation.
