Abstract

This is a descriptive study of the impact that Aniz, Incorporated has had on the battle against HIV/AIDS in the inner city of Atlanta, Georgia. It examines the relationships among an individual’s drug of choice and a person’s failure to protect him or herself from the disease; an individual’s mode of infection and a person’s income level; an individual’s type of insurance and a patient’s T-cell count. The results of the study suggest that there is no statistically significant relationship between a drug of choice and a person’s failure to protect him or herself, there is also no statistically significant relationship between an individual’s mode of infection and a person’s individual income, but there is a statistically significant relationship among types of insurance and an individual’s T-cell count. These findings were based on a .05 level of probability between the variables. This study and others like it will assist Aniz, Incorporated and could assist other nongovernmental agencies to better target their services and programs to better meet the needs of the demographic groups being served.
