ABSTRACT
The article presents study related to clinical care of men with HIV/AIDS. The core of people living with HIV/AIDS in Brazil, following guidelines issued by National Ministry of Health, has brought about a significant reduction in the morbidity and mortality associated with this retroviral infection. Patients were selected by consecutive sampling of those who recognised themselves as men who have sex with women (MSW) and answered a standardised questionnaire on disclosure of HIV diagnosis, health professionals' attitudes at time of diagnosis, clinical follow up, and use of antiretroviral therapy (ART).
