Social support and response to AIDS and severe acute respiratory syndrome

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Nandi, A., M. Tracy, A. Aiello, D.C. Des Jarlais, and Sandro Galea. 2008. "Social support and response to AIDS and severe acute respiratory syndrome." Emerging Infectious Diseases, 14(5): 825-827.

Our findings suggest that social support may be central to our understanding of public responses to emerging infectious diseases.
