With this project, in-depth insights will be obtained in the participation (problems) of people living with HIV at different ages. Specific attention will be paid to different groups raised by HIV clinicians due to problems or questions in the area of participation. For children, the focus will be on school participation, and for adults on employment. The data collection will take place by means of questionnaires and interviews. For this research, there will be an intensive cooperation with the Erasmus MC and the Sophia Children’s Hospital.
