This study examined the effect Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has on Latino women (n = 40) with one or more children. The study consists of40 adult women with one or more children. Participants were asked to complete a survey questionnaire containing the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale and other questions pertaining to the impact HIV has had on their ability to perform daily tasks and their perceived level of support. Descriptive statistics, cross-tabulations, independent t-tests, and multiple linear regressions were completed. The findings revealed that age and perceived level of support were related to depression among women with an HIV diagnosis. Recommendations included having more information available to women in this high-risk category as well as routine HIV testing.
