Backgrounds The number of Indonesian children infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) aged below 19 years old has cumulatively increased by 65.36% from 2011 to 2015. The government of Indonesia has developed and responded to a broad range of care policies and programs on managing this HIV epidemic. However, these care policies primarily focus on the adult, with little attention being paid to children. The objective of this presentation is to describe the methodological underpinning and the practical application of a constructivist grounded theory that is investigating the continuity of care for Indonesian children with HIV from the family and health care professional perspectives. Constructivist grounded theory is appropriate to explore the experiences, actions and events affecting the continuum of care provision for children with HIV in Indonesia. It implies a foundation of relativism and appreciates multiple truths or realities of subjectivism. This presentation will provide some background and give an overview of the constructivist grounded theory methods and process used, including data generation, initial coding, and memo-writing that adopts a mutual position between the researcher and the participants in the research process.
