ABSTRACT
AIDS has a devastating impact on the social support networks of those most closely involved with the person with AIDS (PWA). This qualitative study of the social support networks of confidants to PWAs reports the findings of intensive, semistructured interviews with 11 confidants. Numerous changes were observed in the confidants' supportive resources, network structure, and functioning. Implications for social work practice are discussed.
