Abstract

"Juggling with HIV aims to further our understanding of the experiences of women living with HIV/AIDS in Australia today. It is an analysis of data from the HIV Futures 3 national survey of people living with HIV and AIDS in Australia (Grierson et al. 2002). It is the third major report from the HIV Futures Surveys to specifically address the status of women with HIV/AIDS. It extends and updates the experiences described in the previous two reports on women, A complex uncertainty: Women on hope, health and living with HIV in Australia (McDonald et al. 2000) and Standing on shifting sand: Women living with HIV/AIDS in Australia (McDonald et al.
1998). The HIV Futures studies are carried out by the Living with HIV Program, at the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, La Trobe University, Melbourne. The HIV Futures Surveys are a major part of a broader program of research into the clinical, social and psychological aspects of living with HIV. The survey gathers information on health and treatment, well-being and social support, sex and relationships, recreational drug use, accommodation and finances as well as community involvement, sources of information and experiences of discrimination."
