“... even foster parents are not entitled to know the HIV status of the child they are caring for (NY law).”
Holy cow! I bet that did a lot to encourage families to take in foster children. I would think, however, that the records they ARE entitled to see would reveal enough to deduce an HIV/AIDS diagnosis.
I’m in favor of returning to the older method of informing about especially, contagious disease.
My sister worked in foster care and the stories she told me made my hair stand up.
I am always amazed that AIDS/HIV which is almost wholly a preventable illness is never targeted by the same people who want to limit our salt, sugar, fat etc because of how much it costs the healthcare system.
AIDS/HIV costs est $350,000 lifetime per person. That is a lot of money!
