With the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) the OT's in Israel are faced with new responsibilities and challenges. Since the first reports on people with AIDS (PWA's) in 1981, AIDS became the most serious pandemic of this century. With 226 AIDS cases and 5000-9000 HIV infected in Israel, there is an urgent need for Israeli OT's to become more knowledgeable about this disease, to be aware of their role in the care of PWA's, and to be unbiased towards the infected.
