Background: The success of educational interventions depends on the integration of educational programs into clinical practice. Aim: To determine the educational needs and perceived barriers of people living with HIV (PHIV) and their health care providers (HCP). Material and Methods: Qualitative study conducted in 60 PHIV and 10 HCP. For data collection, a semi-structured in-depth interview was applied, addressing the educational needs (content, methodology, person, time, physical location) and identified barriers to implement an educational program for PHIV. Content analysis technique was used for data analysis. Results: PHIV and their HCP identified the same educational needs as the following: general-related content, psychological, sexual and secondary prevention aspects of the disease. Individual sessions with written material and web pages were identified as important resources to support education. Both PHIV and professionals expressed their willingness to participate in educational programs, but the most commonly identified barrier was lack of time. Conclusions: This study identifies the key elements to include in an educational program for Chilean PHIV from the user and professional perspective.
