The aim of this study was to assess reasons contributing to a cessation of occupational activities in HIV-infected persons.
One hundred patients were studied, 55 of whom were working at the time of the study while 45 were unemployed.
Twenty of the patients had been diagnosed as having AIDS and the remaining patents were HIV-positive.
The main causes of work cessation were psychological, not physical, symptoms.
Disclosure of HIV status to work colleagues or employers does not seem to have an effect on employment.
