Abstract:


In the mid-1990s, medical advances dramatically altered the experience of living with HIV/AIDS. The shifting medical climate spurred new social and financial questions, such as the possibility of returning to work. In this qualitative study, the authors examine how people living with HIV/AIDS perceive, attach meaning to, and approach the experience of returning to work. Findings demonstrate that the participants are influenced by, and wrestle with, both the dominant societal perspective that 'people should return to work, ' and the oppositional perspective that people living with HIV/AIDS 'should not return to work.'

Theoretical understanding of the results is enhanced using the concepts of the 'sick role' and the 'hierarchy of identities.'

Findings have conceptual and methodological implications for literature in HIV/AIDS, return to work, and identity.
