This study presents the results of a research conducted with 27 health professionals caring for patients with aids on the isolation ward of a Regional Reference Center of aids. Data were analyzed and interpreted according to the Existential Phenomenology and demonstrate the view of professionals regarding to this type of caring for. This is a tough, demanding and discriminated patient who shoud be seen just like any other patient; the fear of contagion and prejudice interfere in the deliver of care and in the relationship with this patient, damaging the professional attitude. Although the deleterious effects of the isolation ward on patients are perceived, there are no signs of any perspectives of offering effective support to these patients. The results of the research suggest the need of introducing educational and supporting programas to professionals of this area.
