Abstract: 

The purpose of the present research is to study the effective factors on attitudes and awareness of addicted prisoners toward the AIDS and preventive ways, and to explore the main determinants of the attitudes as well. The study population consists of addicted prisoners in the Shiraz addict camp. Survey is the adopted technique in doing the research. Since the population under study was only 281 prisoners, so the sample includes the total population. In this study different social theories have been employed, such as Anthropological Functionalism, sociological Functionalism, and Critical theories, as well as theories of Lewin, Stiel Krech, Crutchfield and Ballachey. According to the research theoretical model, awareness on AIDS and preventive ways are considered as intermediate variable. Based on this precondition, there would be two groups of hypothesis. First group is concerned with the relations of independent variables with the intermediate variable - awareness on the AIDS and preventive ways - and the second group deals with the relations of independent variables with dependent variable - attitudes toward the AIDS. The path Analysis offers the final model of dependent variable in which, the awareness on the AIDS and preventive ways are affected by the level of education, income, gender, and the times of attendance in prison, and on the other hand, the attitude toward the AIDS is affected by the level of education and the awareness on AIDS and preventive ways.
