Physiotherapists need to be informed about the nature of HIV infection and AIDS, both as care providers and in terms of occupational health and safety. An overview of the natural history of the human immunodeficiency virus and the consequences of infection is given. Safety procedures are outlined and the contribution that physiotherapists can make to the health maintenance of HIV infected patients is briefly described.
