Description

Human Immunodeficiency Virus/ Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is a disease that can be a threat to the physical well-being of an individual but, due to social stigma, can also affect one’s emotional and mental health. The aim of the study is to explore and examine the emotions and experiences of newly infected young African American men. A convenience sampling method is used to select participants from Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN), an organization that provides medical support, mental health services, group counselling and advocacy. The study engages deeply with a small number of participants who describe their experiences living with HIV/AIDS. Probing interviews will be used to explore and study their daily life experiences, taking special note of commonalities. The results of this study will reflect the findings of this in-depth investigation of personal experiences, emotional impact, changes in mood and outlook and expectations of selected participants.
