Behavioural Symptoms of Children with HIV Infection Living in the Dominican Republic

A high percentage of Dominican parents/caregivers rated their HIV infected children as experiencing internalizing (anxiety, depression, somatic complaints) and externalizing problems (rule breaking and aggressive behaviour). Research needs to examine other contributing factors for the maladaptive behaviours such as socio-economic status, caregiver illness, caregiver education and parental loss.


Objective: The purpose of this report is to describe behavioural problems encountered in a group of Dominican children living with Human Immunodeficency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) in the Dominican Republic. They were not receiving antiretroviral treatment.
