AIDS and the Psychogeriatrician

  • Cornelius L. E. Katona (a1)
Extract

It might at first sight appear that old age psychiatrists and geriatricians are relatively well protected from having to deal with the problems of patients suffering from the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). It is therefore perhaps surprising that the major article in the newsletter of the American Geriatric Society is devoted to AIDS and concludes that “there is no question that the AIDS epidemic is the most important world wide public health issue of this century”.
