Abstract:In the case of antiretroviral (ARV) therapy, adherence means taking the prescribed regimen of drugs in the right doses, at the same time, everyday for a lifetime. This is a process that requires adjustment over time and across different aspects of one's lifestyle. Based on 38 interviews with HIV/AIDS patients conducted in Soweto, South Africa, in 2004, this paper focuses on patient-related factors that influence adherence. It explores preparation for treatment, knowledge of treatment, the impact of disclosure on adherence to ARV therapy, coping strategies and gender-specific dynamics that might influence adherence.
