In the second decade of the AIDS epidemic in Taiwan, a qualitative study was conducted to recognize the concerns of internal medicine residents in caring for HIV/AIDS patients and to identify possible strategies to promote HIV-patient care that have not been addressed in previous research. Individual in-depth interview were conducted with 47 internal medicine residents at a university hospital in Taiwan. Seven factors( stereotypes towards AIDS; fear of transmission; concerns of families, friends and colleagues; lack of clinical expertise; lack of collegial support; lack of a sense of accomplishment; and lack of worker’s compensation if infected) were found to be the chief concerns of participants in providing HIV/AIDS care. Four strategies ( education, clinical experiences, safe working environment, and employment benefits) were voiced as those that could promote health care professionals’ well- being and willingness to provide HIV/AIDS care. The results of this study are explained in light of the historical, social and medical context in Taiwan.
