The objective of this research was to understand the perception of the person living with HIV/AIDS and their family members, regarding the care offered in the infectious and parasitic diseases unit. In addition, the anxiety and depression rate that affects them during the hospitalization period will be considered. This study was carried out in the Infectious and Parasitic Inpatient Sector DIP Infirmary (Enf/DIP), which is part of the Infectious and Parasitic Diseases Unit (UNIDIP) of the Hospital Maria Aparecida Pedrossiam (HUMAP), in the municipality of Campo Grande - MS. The prospective collection of primary data was obtained through questionnaires that were replaced by words and expressions in the title and in the content. Changes were made and elaborated with the objective of improving the understanding of the sentences, which became a semantic evaluation of content by a committee of evaluators. Thus, before the final application of the questionnaire to the participants, all the steps cited constituted the methodological strategies for capturing data.
