Examining the Relationships Between Social Determinants of Health and Health-related Quality of Life Among Individuals Living with HIV
The current study examined the relationships between health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and social determinants of health (SDH), which are the individual and structural factors that contribute to health outcomes.
A hierarchical general linear model was used to assess the sequential effect of the SDH on the scores of the Short Form-12 among people living with HIV.
Results show that many psychosocial, medical, demographic, financial, and vocational factors are significant predictors of HRQOL.
Gaining a deeper understanding of the impact of SDH on HRQOL is critical for rehabilitation counselors to develop effective assessments and interventions.
