1. Plain Language Title: "Family Empowerment Model for HIV/AIDS Patients" 2. Lay Summary: This study develops a family empowerment model for people living with HIV/AIDS in Indonesia and examines its impact on health-related quality of life (HRQL). Through quantitative and qualitative methods, including focus groups and expert discussions, the model was created and tested. Structural Equation Model Partial Least Squares (SEM-PLS) analysis was used to evaluate the model's effectiveness. Results show that health services, patient factors, family factors, and empowerment significantly influence HRQL among HIV/AIDS patients. The developed model demonstrates the importance of family support and empowerment in improving HRQL for individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

The integration of quantitative and qualitative methods enhances the robustness of the research findings and contributes valuable insights to the field of HIV/AIDS care and support. Given the increasing trend of HIV/AIDS prevalence in Indonesia, the development and implementation of targeted interventions like the family empowerment model are essential for mitigating the impact of the disease on affected individuals and communities.


As someone passionate about public health and social empowerment, I find this study's focus on developing a family empowerment model for HIV/AIDS patients in Indonesia both innovative and impactful. By recognizing the role of family support and empowerment in improving health-related quality of life, the research offers a holistic approach to addressing the multifaceted needs of individuals living with HIV/AIDS. The use of mixed methods design and Structural Equation Model Partial Least Squares (SEM-PLS) analysis adds rigor to the study findings, enhancing its credibility and applicability in real-world settings. I believe that the insights gained from this research have the potential to inform policy and practice initiatives aimed at enhancing HIV/AIDS care and support services in Indonesia and beyond.
