Abstract

This explanatory descriptive study examined variables which will help to better understand the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of social workers towards HIV/AIDS. The study examined three important factors: (a) knowledge of disease transmission and perceived risk; (b) infection control, practices and antibody testing; and (c) attitudes towards refusal to care and other ethical issues. The findings revealed that there is no significant difference in the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of social workers towards HIV/AIDS.
