In lifelong anti-retroviral (ARV) treatment, the resistance of People With HIV AIDS (PLWHA) is very important because the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), attacking or infecting T lymphocytes, causes a decrease in the immune system. As a result, it causes physical, psychological, independence, social, environmental, and spiritual problems. One factor that can affect PLWHA compliance in undergoing ARV treatment therapy is the role of peer support groups. The degree of PLWHA compliance with ARV can reduce the rate of pain and even death from HIV.
