Answer

You can find articles about this subject in the College of the Mainland Library databases.  To do so, follow the link below to our Databases by Subject libguide.  The databases on the Health and Nursing tabs should both have some material on the subject.

Many of the databases are provided by Ebsco.  In these databases, you can retrieve all articles about individuals with these diseases by searching for DE "AIDS patients" OR DE "HIV-positive persons".  This will retrieve several thousand articles.  You can reduce the number with the options on the left side of the screen (full-text, source type, subject: thesaurus term), or by adding additional search criteria (example: DE "AIDS patients" AND quality of life).

There are also articles about the subject in Gale Health Reference Center Academic.  In this database, select the Subject tab and search for AIDS patients.

You can learn more about using the databases through the Find Articles guide below.
