Because individuals with mental retardation have recently been identified as a group at-risk for developing HIV infection, HIV/AIDS training programs for service providers working with this population are critical.
In this study an HIV/AIDS education program for family-based foster care providers was described and evaluated.
The results indicate that although these service providers had some prior knowledge about HIV and AIDS, there were significant improvements in knowledge following the training.
Implications of these findings for individuals with mental retardation were discussed.
