Abstract

The authors offer a proposed model of staging of reaction to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in asymptomatic homosexual men. This model is an adaptation of the Kiibler- Ross (1970) model of reaction to the information of diagnoses of a terminal illness. This adaptation has been found necessary because of the uncertainty related to HIV infection and the effect the status brings upon an already stigmatized minority. This model was developed based upon a case-note review of responses of 153 patients who were informed of their HIV antibody positive status and followed through for a period of one and three years.
