Quality of life (QOL) is an important outcome of HIV treatment and a priority in the management of HIV. A new Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) questionnaire to measure the QOL in people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) from different cultures and language groups has been developed. The instrument, PROQOL-HIV, has undergone psychometric validation in 791 individuals from 8 countries including 99 people from the WA HIV Cohort Study.
