Abstract

One of the array of clinical and ethical challenges faced by the practitioner who works with people with AIDS is dealing with clients who feel they prefer the option of suicide to living with the disease. The many dimensions of suicide among the terminally ill, including preemptive, surcease, and rational suicide, are explored. The critical issues addressed are the incidence of suicide in HIV-positive individuals, contributing factors associated with the risk of suicide among people with HIV/AIDS, and the clinical and ethical implications of this issue for the practitioner.
