Abstract

Communication about health issues such as HIV/AIDS is essential for people, especially women, to obtain the social support they need either to prevent illness or manage it. This article compares the kinds of HIV-related issues that HIV positive and HIV negative substance-abusing women (N=211) in New York City talk about with various types of supporters. Despite the stigmaassociated with AIDS and their unconventional lifestyles, both groups of women talked to a broad spectrum of supporters about a variety of HIV-related issues, though this was more the case for HIV positive women. Although the main topic that both groups discussed with their supporters was their HIVstatus, the women also talked about risk reduction, their supporters' HIV status, HIV testing, how to live with AIDS, information about HIV/AIDS, andthe emotional impact of AIDS (e.g., fear of infection, reactions to learning test results, and the impact of knowing others who have died from the disease).
