In Italy, care for people with AIDS (PWA) is centred on hospital services.
However, other services are beginning to develop, both in the form of residential facilities and of home care.
It seems, therefore, important to define the type of non-hospital services that should be supplied on the basis of AIDS patients' real need.
The aim of this paper is to contribute to the definition of care requirements by administration to 92 persons with ARC/AIDS of a questionnaire on Functional Multidimensional Evaluation to assess the demand for services in relation to the state of health and socio-economic situation of those interviewed.
The pattern that emerged was one of severe socio-economic difficulties (most of the patients were drug addicts) and of major functional imnpairment.
(about 60% of those interviewed were not self-sufficient as far as Instrumental Activities of Daily Living were concerned).
