    Abstract

    Introduction: Vietnam has one of the fastest growing HIV- epidemics in the world. In Vietnam the primary caregivers are the family.

    Aim:  The aim was to examine caregiver burden and need of support among family members of persons living with HIV [PLHIV] in Ho Chi Minh City, and also to investigate the differences in these matters between genders.

    Method:  A descriptive cross-sectional study with quantitative method was used. The study was carried out at the Hospital of Tropical Diseases, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where people living with HIV are treated. A convenience sample was used. Seventy one of 87 questionnaires were completed.

    Result: The largest groups reported “mild to moderate” (35%) and moderate to severe” (42%) caregiver burden. The caregivers felt that they should do more for their relative and a better job in caring for them. They also expressed that the financial situation added to the burden. The needs of support most requested were economic support, knowledge about caring, and mental support to cope. Concerning caregiver burden scale only one significant difference was found, male participants found it more embarrassing to have friends over than female participants. High caregiver burden was strongly associated with depression (p=0.00).

    Conclusion: High caregiver burden and feeling of depression was strongly associated. The caregivers of PLHIV are in need of different kinds of support to cope with their situation. Intervention including care plan should be given to caregivers to minimize risk of burden and depression and increase their quality of life.
