Abstract

The presence of HIV infection, alone or in combination with other infections and diseases, can have a serious impact on a patient's health and quality of life (QOL). According to the World Health Organization (WHO) Constitution of 1948, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or "infirmity" [1]. Like the definition of health, the definition of QOL is broad and multidimensional, ”[An] individual's perception of their position in life in the context of the culture and value systems in which they live and in relation to their goals, expectations, standards and concerns" [2].
