Abstract
HIV-positive patients with antiretroviral medication adherence issues are referred to an outpatient adherence clinic. Surprisingly, two-third of referred patients are women although more than 60% of the patients at the Infectious Disease Outpatient service are men. Women seem to be referred because of specific social factors: children at home, black sub-Saharan ethnicity, difficulties in medication and disease management due to stigmatization. Literature is poor and controversial and it is not possible to conclude whether medication adherence varies with gender. However, recent data seem to show that reasons for nonadherence vary according to gender.
