05 Jul 2009Sexual Contacts of Person with HIV are at a risk of this disease as are medical personnel. This warrants ruling out the possibility of HIV in any suspected case. What could be a possible reason for someone refusing the test_? Why should human rights of this individual supersede right to life of his contacts_? Also not allowing a doctor to diagnose this dreadful disease can be detrimental to one`s own life which is itself illegal in modern society.

01 Jul 2009a screening for HIV is not only for the patient`s benefit but is also for the people who look after them.nothing can justify the rationale of not doing it even after knowing that it can be contracted in simplest of hospital procedures.
