This research endeavour has been undertaken among women living with HIV Positive in Chennai City of Tamil Nadu, with the objectives of investigating the socio-economic background, marital status, circumstances leading to HIV infection, sexual behaviour after infection, impact of HIV/AIDS in social relationships and their attitude towards pregnancy and child birth after infection. Since the prevalence of HIV is an estimated figure based on sentinel surveillance data on the selected sites according to UNAIDS/WHO criteria, the universe is not taken into consideration for this study. Therefore, purposive sampling technique is adopted to contact the respondents by resorting to snowballing procedure. Accordingly, 200 women living with HIV positive in Chennai city were interviewed with the structured interview schedule to collect required information on the line of objectives formulated for the study. Apart from interview with the respondents, discussion was also held with Government officials and N.G.Os working in AIDS intervention programmes. Available data had been subjected to process statistically leading to analysis and interpretation. Based upon the analysis and findings, a specific action plan has been evolved to provide care and support for the women infected with HIV and to create AIDS free society.
