Face issue is deeply embedded in Chinese culture. HIV/AIDS goes beyond a disease and is always linked with commercial sex, homosexual behaviors and drug abuse behaviors which are regarded as immoral in Chinese traditional culture. In order to save face, people living with HIV are more likely to conceal their serostatus and isolate themselves from health care. Walker and Avant's (1995) concept analysis model of eight steps was employed in this paper to identify the attributes of Disgrace in terms of social, community and individual level which include the conflict between behavior and the social norm, individual's perception of public awareness and the conflict between individual's behavior and one's own values. The antecedents of Disgrace were defined as (a) doing the bad things or illegal behaviors which are not accepted by the general public, (b) stigma placed on the patients; (c) Chinese culture of face issue, and (d) patients' lack of knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS. One consequence of disgrace is isolation, not seeking the heath care, denying or refusing social support and a low quality of life. Another consequence is suicide or acting out by infecting others. Empirical referent might be the depiction of patients' feeling of disgrace or the use of Disgrace scale. Two suggestions were made in the end of the article to decrease disgrace, (a) improve the whole nation's knowledge regarding HIV/AIDS by providing more training, adequately using mass media, or setting up the corresponding curriculum, and (b) develop family and community-based care for HIV/AIDS in China to ensure the patients can access medical services when desired.
