To determine attitudinal predictors of health-care providers' willingness to treat HIV-infected patients.

A cross-sectional design was used to administer a self-report questionnaire format to preserve subject anonymity.
A questionnaire was used to assess attitudes, knowledge, and behavior associated with the care of HIV-infected patients.
Both bivariate statistics and logistic regression techniques were used to determine factors related to the desire to treat HIV-infected patients.
