Psychosocial Perspectives on AIDS: Etiology, Prevention, and Treatment

By Lydia Temoshok; Andrew Baum | Go to book overview

a number of non-AIDS-related populations may provide useful data for the effort to curb the spread of the epidemic. When the story is told, however, the most compelling rationale for psychosocial study of AIDS-related issues is that they are crucial to the fight against AIDS. Without such research, the role of psychological variables in the etiology, progression, treatment, and prevention of the disease will not be identified, and the overall effort to combat the disease will be hampered.
