Abstract: Despite long term access to highly active antiretroviral therapy in Brazil and the US, little is known about women’s communication with their HIV provider regarding childbearing or the unmet need for reproductive counseling. We utilized identical survey questions to collect data from HIV-infected women of reproductive age in Rio de Janeiro (n = 180) and Baltimore (n = 181). We conducted univariate analyses to compare findings between samples of women and multivariate logistic regression to determine factors associated with childbearing desires, childbearing intentions, and provider communication among the combined sample of women (n = 361). Over one-third of women in Rio de Janeiro and nearly one-half of women in Baltimore reported the desire for future childbearing. Nevertheless, the majority of women in clinical care had not discussed future childbearing with their HIV provider. Even in countries with an advanced approach to HIV care, we found low and inadequate communication between providers and female patients about childbearing.
Abstract in spanish: Al pesar del acceso a largo plazo a la terapia antiretroviral en Brasil y en los Estados Unidos, hay poco conocimiento al respecto de la comunicación entre las mujeres viviendo com VIH y sus médicos en cuanto a sus deseos de tener mas hijos o la necesidad del consejo relacionado con la reproduccion. En este estudio utilizamos preguntas identicas en los dos estudios para coleccionar datos entre las mujeres infectadas con VIH de edad reproductiva, 180 viviendo en Rio de Janeiro y 181 viviendo en Baltimore. Condujimos análisis univariados para comparar los resultados entre las muestras de mujeres y la regressión logistica multivariada para determinar los factores asociados con los deseos de parir, incluyendo las intenciones para parir y la comunicación de los medicos HIV entre 361 mujeres. Más de un tercio de mujeres en Rio de Janeiro y casi una mitad de las mujeres en Baltimore reportaron que desearon parir en el futuro. Sin embargo, la mayoría de las mujeres no había discutido con sus médicos su deseo de parir en el futuro. Aun en los países con un enfoque avanzado en relacion al atendimiento clinic para HIV, nos dimos cuenta que hay una comunicación insuficiente acerca del deseo de tener mas hijos entre los medicos de HIV y sus pacientes.
