Abstract

HIV is a potential source of TB particularly in the Indian subcontinent.an aids patient being thrown out of the village is an everyday story in the Indiannewspapers, which is the magnitude of stigma attached to this disease. With a host of conventional ethnic medical practices and false promises of treatment and guarantee given by quacks for quick money, a new dimension to the spread of disease may take shape. Even today aids vaccine is not a reality and antiretroviral treatment is restricted to an advanced stage and after a thorough patient counselling. This questionnaire survey is an attempt to find out the awareness about AIDS,HIV among patients reporting to the dental OPD in a tertiary care hospital in rural Maharashtra.
