  1. AIDS knowledge and attitudes of health-care workers in Mexico.

    Article - En anglais

    AIDS threatens to spread rapidly in Mexico.

    In the present study, results of a survey of 204 Mexican employees in hospitals and doctors'offices indicated that those health-care workers were largely knowledgeable about the illness.

    A majority were willing to provide AIDS care, although they feared contagion.

    Multiple regression analyses indicated that (a) attitudes toward high-risk groups (intravenous drug users and homosexuals) and (b) fear of contagion were both related to intentions to provide care to AIDS patients.
