The aim of this research brief is to summarize a case report study that described an HIV-positive married couple’s poor disclosure experience of their illnesses to all their children in the household. It is important to communicate this couple’s HIV disclosure experience to healthcare professionals so that they are aware of the problems that can occur if married or cohabiting couples do not collaborate with each other during the disclosure process. The data presented in the case report study and in this research brief should be used to provide targeted counseling to HIV-positive parents or cohabiting couples considering disclosure to their children.
