Abstract

Although HIV is considered a long-term controllable infection and a chronic illness, obstacles and challenges of obtaining and maintaining employment among adults living with HIV/AIDS still remain. State vocational rehabilitation service can play an important role to help people with HIV/AIDS stay at work or return to work. It is however, unclear whether state vocational rehabilitation agencies provide tailored services that are based on the stay-at-work vs return-to-work status of clients with HIV/AIDS rather than providing the same set of services for all HIV clients. The aim of this study was to investigate whether vocational rehabilitation service provision is different between persons with HIV/AIDS who are (a) employed but applying services to maintain employment, and (b) unemployed and applying for services to gain employment. Multiple discriminant analysis (MDA) results revealed that employed and unemployed persons with HIV at application did in fact receive different sets of services directed to whether the goal of rehabilitation was to address concerns related to job retention or the goal is to find a job after a period of unemployment. Findings of this study provide empirical evidence supporting that counselors do provide services tailored to the stay-at-work and return-to-work needs of individuals with HIV/AIDS.
