ABSTRACT
A cross-sectional study was made with the main objective to prove the effects of length of infection (in months) on predictors of adherence behaviors to antiretroviral therapy in a sample of 44 persons with HIV. A multiple linear regression analysis showed that motives and stress-related to high tolerance to ambiguity predicted adherence behaviors (F[3,43]= 8,310; p= 0.000). Using length of infection (average 55 months) as a criteria variable, in the group of ≤55 months predictors were motives and low depressive symptomatology (F[2,21]= 10,435; p= 0.001), meanwhile in the group of >55 months predictors were motives and stress-related to high tolerance to frustration (F[2,21]= 11,057; p= 0.001). The results of this study support the hypothesis of a causal relationship between the lenght of infection and predictors of adherence behaviors in people with HIV, aspect that must be considere in the proccesses of desing and implementing interdisciplinary intervention programs directed to promote the consistent and efficient practice of such behaviors.
