HIV infection affects all aspects of a person’s occupational functioning. This article examines the application of the Model of Human Occupation (Kielhofner & Burke, 1980) to adults with HIV. An occupational therapy assessment battery based on the model is introduced.

Goal planning and treatment follow the assessment process. A case example illustrates the integration of the Model of Human Occupation with clinical practice.
