Psychological reactions to HIV infection will affect the course of the disease (for example, denial or depression may result in delayed treatment and increased morbidity). Reactions to people with HIV are sometimes irrationally fearful and prejudicial: these social realities also complicate the response to the disease and affect the patient's ability to cope.
