LOMBARDO PEREIRA, G.  and  COSTA AGUIAR, B.G.. Envejeciendo con AIDS o el AIDS en el envejecimiento: perfil epidemiológico en un hospital de la Universidad de Rio de Janeiro. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.26, pp.10-20. ISSN 1695-6141.

The study aims to identify the epidemiological profile of HIV / AIDS in the population of women of 60 years and more at a University Hospital and to describe the elements characterizing the infection in this population taking into account considering gender issues. This documentary research seeks to, to present the characteristics involved in the infection of these women. An empirical sample was selected from the population treated at the hospital. The sample was representative, in order to reflect behavior. The results revealed the epidemiological profile of the clientele from the reds of 106 individuals, aged 60 and over, 57 male and 49 female. Excluded were women who did not contain data related to education, marital status, date of diagnosis (laboratory confirmation) and the form of contamination. 34 records were then analysed, concluding that the profile of women aged 60 and older at the Hospital Universitario confirms the current data in the country, and highlighting within this group the proportion of single women and widows, 29% and 35% respectively, who are infected by heterosexual relations, and characterizing the incidence in women who were alone.

Keywords : women; elderly; HIV; epidemiological profile.
