CHWs serving people living with HIV/AIDS contribute to healthy behaviors and better health outcomes; however, there is a gap in the literature regarding how the health of HIV + CHWs is impacted by their jobs. The author of this dissertation used a phenomenological design to gain insight into the lived experiences of HIV+ CHWs (HIVCHW) who provided services to HIV positive clients. The study emphasizes the need for workforce tools such as stress and time management training and mentors to support healthy work-life balance.
