ABSTRACT With the objective of discussing the implications of the social representations of HIV/AIDS for the interpersonal relations and the practices for protection among adolescents, 15 semidirective interviews were carried out with adolescents, both with and without HIV, assisted at a Hospital School in Rio de Janeiro. The software ALCESTE 4.5 was used for the data analysis. It was observed that the social representation of AIDS is structured around cognitions connected to prevention, revealing a contradiction between the knowledge and the practices reported by the group. It is suggested that the nursing practices should be directed towards the reduction of the distance between practices, representations and scientific knowledge.

    ABSTRACT: This descriptive, exploratory study was performed using a qualitative approach with the purpose of learning about the life style of children with AIDS and the implications that following a antiretroviral therapy have on them. Participants were five children with ages between 10 and 12 years. Data collection took place after the study was approved by the Review Board and was performed using the Focal Group technique. Data analysis was performed using thematic analysis, from which three categories and respective subcategories emerged. This article addresses one of the categories: The child's involvement with the antiretroviral drugs. This category reveals how the children perceive and relate with the antiretroviral therapy.

    ABSTRACT: O advento da AIDS há mais de 25 anos no cenário epidemiológico mundial, traz consigo a discussão acerca de comportamentos sexuais, crenças e valores. Dentre os modelos e teorias, que auxiliam na compreensão da exposição ao risco para o HIV, destaca-se o Modelo de Crenças em Saúde. O modelo enfatiza que o comportamento em relação a uma ameaça à sua saúde, é dependente de quatro variáveis: percepção de susceptibilidade; de severidade; benefícios e barreiras percebidas. Objetivou-se identificar a percepção de vulnerabilidade de adolescentes do sexo masculino, acerca das DST/HIV. Estudo qualitativo teve como cenário uma escola pública em Fortaleza-CE. Os informantes foram 16 adolescentes com idade entre 14 e 18 anos. A coleta de informações ocorreu em maio e junho de 2008, através de entrevista semi-estruturada, baseada nas variáveis propostas no modelo. Os adolescentes identificam mais benefícios do que barreiras no que concerne à prevenção das DST. Em relação aos benefícios percebidos, são associados ao uso de preservativo e ainda a melhorias no diálogo entre parceiros sexuais. É mister que o Enfermeiro fomente medidas preventivas e de Educação em Saúde junto aos adolescentes, que favoreçam a reflexão acerca da vulnerabilidade às DST/HIV e seu impacto na qualidade de vida.

    ABSTRACT: This study aimed to analyze social relationships made by hospitalized people who live with HIV under their social representations of AIDS. It was used a descriptive and qualitative approach based on the Social Representations Theory. Data was collected in a teaching hospital from Rio de Janeiro, where 13 people were interviewed. Data were collected through interviews and analyzed based on lexical analysis using Alceste 4.7 software. The analysis covers the thematic group classes 2, 4 and 5. Social relationships built at virus exposure situations, at nursing care process and at the sickness confront context are revealed, such as relationships kept within themselves and with the world too. It was concluded that the patients seem to diagram their complex relationships by a psychosocial organization of HIV/Aids.
