This study examines the role of support provided by healthcare staff in the resilience process of adults living with HIV/AIDS in the face of the adversity of social stigmatization in the city of Yaoundé. Health professionals must work to build resilience by highlighting and developing the potential of people living with HIV/AIDS. Emphasis must therefore be placed on a series of individual characteristics known to be protective factors and facilitators of resilience: positive self-esteem and self-image, the ability to arouse sympathy, a feeling of control over one's life, creativity, humour, etc. Hospital staff must strive to identify and assess their patients' resilience through a number of structuring dimensions: personal dimensions, family dimensions and extra-family (social and community) dimensions.

Keywords : HIV/AIDS, Adults, Stigma, Resilience, Healthcare Staff and Support.
