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 study was aimed at investigating the characteristics of occupational accidents and of the workers that suffered them, and at evaluating the adhesion to chemoprophylaxis and to control and follow up tests after occupational accidents with risk of contamination by the human immunodeficiency virus and of the hepatitis B and C virus. This is a descriptive epidemiological study whose data was collected from the notifications of one of the administrative regions of the State of São Paulo's Secretary of Health between 2000 and 2001. It was observed 7.3% of refusals for chemoprophylaxis against human immunodeficiency virus by antiretrovirals, and that 40.6% of the care workers who accepted the chemoprophylaxis did not complete the treatment in the four weeks estimated for it. This diagnosis highlights the need for the institutions involved to establish strategies that make possible an increase in the adherence of health workers to these care procedures.

    ABSTRACT: Dissertação (mestrado)—Universidade de Brasília, Instituto de Psicologia, 2009. Esta pesquisa teve como objeto de estudo as pessoas infectadas com o vírus HIV/aids em suas relações sociais, enfocando as Representações Sociais (RS) como elementos de ancoragem do preconceito. Os objetivos desta pesquisa foram: examinar a natureza do preconceito e os elementos das RS que o ancoram, bem como sua manifestação nas relações grupais, e identificar a existência de preconceito quanto à forma de infecção. Realizaram-se dois estudos empíricos. No primeiro, para acessar as RS de 169 universitários do Distrito Federal acerca dos portadores do vírus, foi aplicado questionário com perguntas sobre meios de informação, de evocação e escala de distância social. No segundo, para acessar as práticas sociais entre nove vizinhos e os quatro dirigentes das casas de apoio ao portador do DF, utilizou-se entrevistas semi-estruturadas. Os dados foram analisados por procedimentos estatísticos, pelos programas EVOC e ALCESTE. Encontraram-se evidências da mediação das RS na relação intergrupal sorodiscordantes, cujos elementos estão relacionados com as thematas puro-impuro, assimetria entre maioria e minoria, e proibição de contato, conotando o preconceito em relação às formas de infecção e que ancora práticas discriminatórias. ________________________________________________________________________________ ABSTRACT This research had as its object of study HIV positive people in their social relations, focusing on Social Representations (SR) as elements of the anchoring bias.

The second to access the social practices of nine neighbors and the four leaders of recuperation houses in the Federal District, we used semi-structured interviews.
