“…8,16 Young adults are not always prepared for these confrontations and, in this process, the desire to receive more detailed information about the disease and treatment is awakened, a practice that is paramount in the care of young adults with HIV/AIDS. 16,22 Complexity allows for a better understanding of human problems, including those linked to HIV/AIDS. 23 When analyzing the adherence to treatment of young adults with HIV/AIDS from the perspective of complex thinking, the presence of some complex situations in the lives of these young people were observed, among them coping with living with HIV/AIDS, experiencing the effects of antiretroviral drugs at the beginning of the treatment, "Being Young" with HIV/AIDS and having to adhere to the treatment of a chronic condition, among other situations that constitute, therefore, a complex whole.…”
