Primary Outcome Measures:
  • VAS scale of acceptability [ Time Frame: For a given participant, study procedure is about 60 minutes. Total period of the study is 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A graduated visual analogue scale (VAS) from 0 (Whatever my situation, I never accept the use of a therapeutic vaccine) to 10 (I totally agree, and I see no problem use a therapeutic vaccine soon there will be one available).

    The VAS scale of acceptability is a classic visual analogue scale horizontal scale length 10 cm, graduated from 0 to 10, on which the patient turns his level of agreement with the proposal by a checkmark. The score can then be converted to a 100-point scale to facilitate interpretation of scores.

    Which to associate an overall acceptability score compiled from questionnaires.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • score of quality of life [ Time Frame: For a given participant, study procedure is about 60 minutes. Total period of the study is 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    with the PROQOL-HIV questionnaire

  • confidence score of the patient-physician relationship [ Time Frame: For a given participant, study procedure is about 60 minutes. Total period of the study is 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

  • perception score of the severity of the disease [ Time Frame: For a given participant, study procedure is about 60 minutes. Total period of the study is 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
