Rounds, Kathleen A.
Social Work, v33 n3 p257-61 May-Jun 1988
Examined the development and provision of social services to persons with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and their families in rural areas and barriers to the delivery of care. Subjects (N=15) were persons who coordinated or provided services to AIDS victims. Found structural factors, confidentiality, fear of contagion, and homophobia to be challenges to providing care.
