Our research explores the adoption of the new approach for managing the insertion of HIV patients in the public hospital of Dabou, Ivory Coast.  Our study of phenomenological type is in a context of the spread of the pandemic of the virus HIV forth 20th century (HIV/AIDS). With a big influence in sub-Saharan Africa, the complexity of the antiretroviral treatment, its side effects and especially risks of vial resistance. What justifies the use of therapeutic education throughout the whole process of recovery in France as well as in Ivory Coast? We used the public hospital of Dabou because of the strong group of people living with a high viral load of HIV in this town. Our aim is to show how therapeutic education can reduce the viral load among the people living with the HIV and treated at the public hospital of Dabou. Our sample is about 200 persons living with a high viral load which is over 5000 ml of blood; we have been having one individual session and two group sessions with each of them. Our results confirm the usefulness of the therapeutic education in the care of people living with HIV for the reducing of their viral load.
