The advent of antiretroviral therapies represent a major therapeutic progress which dramatically modifies HIV seropositive people's life during the past fifteen years. After the violence of a formerly rapidly fatal disease comes nowadays the heaviness of a chronic disease. If some problems are new for the patients, it also represents new challenges for the caregivers. Due to the lack of access to medications in certain context or because of nonadherence to treatment, the full potential of these therapies is difficult to reach. We present here the experience of a therapeutic patient educational program for HIV seropositive persons. This program aimed not only to develop patient's skills to elicit them to find a balance between their life and their disease, but also to improve the skills of the caregivers to face the problem of chronicity.
