Isi artikelAim: to provide an overview of the quality of life (OQL) for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in Jakarta, particularly in the Kramat 128 Hospital, based on CD4 and viral load (VL) levels and the length of antiretroviral (ARV) treatment. Methods: a cross-sectional study performed at Kramat 128 Hospital Jakarta Outpatient Clinic from November 2010 to January 2011. Quality of life was assessed with the WHOQOL-BREF instrument. The data were analyzed using Chi-Square test, independent T-test, and One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) test. Results: the mean score in four domains of QOL in descending order were psychological (72.27), physical health (70.10), environment (65.59), and social relationships (64.44). There were a significant differences in overall QOL (p=0.000) and general health (p=0.001) between lower and higher CD4 levels. Patients who were interviewed look healthy physically and psychologically, have a good QOL based on statistical analysis. Patients with undetectable VL levels had better in general health (p=0.012), and those with longer ARV therapy (>1 year) had better overall QOL (p=0.024) and general health (p=0.003). Analysis with four domains of QOL showed a significant relationship of CD4 levels with the physical health (p=0.001) and psychological domain (p=0.043). VL levels showed significant relationships with the four domains of QOL (p<0.05). Duration of ARV therapy showed a significant association only with physical health domain (p=0.015). Conclusion: higher CD4 levels, undetectable VL, and longer ARV therapy will increase patient’s QOL. Higher QOL will make the patient have ability to cope with illness. So, a better QOL can be taken as indicator of successful ARV treatment.
