Abstract

This thesis involves three sections exploring disclosure amongst adolescents with HIV. Part one is a literature review examining the current literature around disclosure for young people with HIV and highlighting the factors that both facilitate and inhibit disclosure. Part two is an empirical paper outlining a qualitative study interviewing young people with perinatally acquired HIV on their attitudes and experiences towards disclosure. Part three is a critical appraisal of the research experience, commenting upon some of the challenges of conducting the research, methodological issues and learning points. All three sections should influence further research and have implications for clinical work in suggesting ways in which young people with HIV can be better supported around disclosure.
