ABSTRACT
Using the PEN-3 model, the purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the factors responsible for the childbearing decisions of women living with HIV/AIDS (WLHA) in Lagos, Nigeria. Sixty WLHA who sought care at a teaching hospital in Lagos were recruited to participate in in-depth interviews. The average age of the participants was 30 years, and 48 participants were receiving antiretroviral therapy. Healthcare and spiritual practices, healthcare provider-patient communication about childbearing, and husband/partner support emerged as factors that contribute to the childbearing decisions of WLHA. The findings reveal the importance of discussing sexual reproductive health and childbearing issues with WLHA in the healthcare context prior to pregnancy.

fig1: The PEN-3 model.

Mentions: PEN-3 has three domains, and each domain has three dimensions (see Figure 1). The three interconnected domains are cultural empowerment (CE), relationships and expectations (RE), and cultural identity (CI). CE considers the positive, existential, and negative cultural values that are factored into health behaviors and decisions. RE considers factors such as perceptions, enablers, and nurturers that influence health behaviors and decisions. CI reveals the appropriate level of focus for health interventions—the person, the extended family, or the neighborhood—by addressing how one's identity plays a critical role in influencing health decisions [7, 14].
