In the literature on AIDS, much attention has been paid to the Western health care workers' knowledge of and attitudes toward AIDS.
Little is known of the knowledge and attitudes of health care workers of developing countries.
This study provides a descriptive and comparative examination of Tanzanian nurses'knowledge of, and attitudes toward AIDS and their perceived support when caring for patients with AIDS.
A self-completing questionnaire was used to collect data.
Questionnaires were completed and returned by 172 of the 180 nurses to whom they were distributed, a response rate of 95.5%. A random sample of 45 nurses was chosen from each hospital-two teaching and two regional hospitals.
