  • Abstract:

The study proposed a reduced World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQoL
(BREF)) questionnaire with 19 variables by combining the WHOQoL (BREF) questionnaire with the
World Health Organization Quality of Life-Human Immunodeficiency Virus (WHOQoL-HIV
(BREF) questionnaire using binary logistic regression. Sensitivity and specificity tests were carried
out as diagnostic accuracy to measure the level of agreement between the results of a test under
evaluation and that of the reference standard. The proposed questionnaire gave a positive predictive
value (PPV) and a negative predictive value (NPV) that are as good as the gold standard for measuring
quality of life using real life data. A detailed analyses with significant odd ratios for the proposed
instrument was reported.
