Presentation of findings from a qualitative research study designed to gain a better understanding of factors that may facilitate or impede initiation and continuation of HIV care in a rural county with a predominantly minority population in South Carolina.  Elements critical to retaining patients in care include patient-specific themes (e.g., desire for survival, self-determination, fear of disclosure) and themes related to organizational culture and characteristics.
