GOLDSTEEN, Raymond L. e GOLDSTEEN, Karen. An investigation into support for restrictions on HIV carriers in the Chicago metropolitan area. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1990, vol.24, n.1, pp. 28-38. ISSN 0034-8910. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101990000100006.
An investigation into support for restrictions on people testing seropositive for HIV is reported on. Data were collected during telephone interviews with two-hundred adults aged eighteen to sixty-five in the Chicago metropolitan area. Using the analytic technique of LISREL, six models which attempt to explain support for restrictions were tested. It was found that the model best supported by the data indicates that two groups contribute to support for restrictions on HIV carriers - one due to intolerance of homosexuality and one to mistrust of public health officials regarding their control and management of the AIDS epidemic. The relevance of these findings for public health policy makers is discussed.
