On two consecutive years, a descriptive study was made to determine professional behaviour of health staff in “ Joaquín Paneca Consuegra” Hospital in Yaguajay municipality in the case of persons carriers of HIV/AIDS during February and March 2005-2006. Study sample consisted of the 199 physicians and paramedical staff present in 2005 in this institution, compared to year 2006 was of 254 respectively. En both years, a simple randomized sample was obtained of 65 workers. It is possible to say that all staff knows as main transmission route,the sexual one, increasing incidence by means of the perinatal route, not by blood route. As regards biosecurity guidelines applied in hospital, it was possible to demonstrate that figure of staff unware of the above guidelines; but yet remains a percentage without the necessary knowledge level for the carrying-out of medical procedures. Percentage of fearful workers, those sought advise with regard to care of those patients, and those without this function.
