" it was observed that the majority experienced episodes of anxiety (67%), depression (59%) and stigma associated with the disease (89%). Most (78%) isolate themselves from friends and even from the extended family......regularly followed, able to talk, get their doubts and realize what was being explained facilitated their adherence to antiretroviral treatment ......Many have reported seeing the relationship between the effectiveness of treatment and the regularity and compliance of the medication (even when taking many other medications) only possible with this direct relationship and systematic monitoring and proximity assistance. ......switching from three tablets to a single shot facilitated Another factor that seems important for the improvement of self-control and self-efficacy, autonomy and socialization of the participants was the psychological counseling and counseling where the psychopathological dimensions were worked out and improved.

Purpose of this project in Portugal includes: Provide nursing, psychological, social and legal support to be close to those people infected and affected by HIV.....In HIV + seniors, it was particularly important to realize their real needs. The monitoring of SLWHIV and the identification of their needs leading to an effective increase in their quality of life led us to create the In.Porto.Me Solidary Office. Multidisciplinary support for PLWHIV was provided to 180 cases referenced initially and it was reflected in:
 
• Monitoring of health status through assisted medication, facilitating the understanding for effective therapeutic adherence;
• Psychosocial support provided by the psychologist and the social worker;
• Provision of nursing services in cases of users showing impaired mobility.
