This study seeks to investigate the relationship between the impact of multidimensional and complex stigma problems on women's groups, especially those with low social status and the role of cadres through the empowerment model of community-based HIV/AIDS cadres. By using a systematic review study design, with an in-depth analysis of keywords of empowerment from respected sources and bibliometrics in the health field, the results of this study can be used as a framework for the development of science, especially community nursing. The results show that the role of cadres for HIV-positive people is needed because of the need for women's groups to get support from groups and the environment to express feelings of pressure, facilitate the safe disclosure of HIV status, build networks of friendship, socialize and provide emotional support so that they become empowered, respectful self and enhance emotional and physical life. The practical implication is a credible empirical explanation of the empowerment model of HIV/AIDS cadres on the stigma and quality of life of women with HIV/AIDS. The theoretical contribution of this study is the effort to develop application theory that can be directly applied in care to the community by integrating the health empowerment intervention theory and the community as partner model.
