MALANCA, Adriana et al. Disclosure of human immunodeficiency virus diagnosis in children and adolescents affected by it and their caregivers. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2017, vol.115, n.2, pp.195-199. ISSN 0325-0075.

Children and adolescents need to know about their health or that of their parents. However, families affected by human immunodeficiency virus often delay disclosure of diagnosis for fear of stigma or discrimination or simply because they wonder when and how to communicate it. We present the experience of implementing a program to "reveal" the human immunodeficiency virus diagnosis to children, adolescents and caregivers. The aim was to describe and understand the impact of disclosure and to collaborate on actions to improve comprehensive care for families living with human immunodeficiency virus.

Keywords : Adolescent; Caregivers; HIV infections; Disclosure; Social stigma.
