  1. Confidentiality concerning HIV/AIDS status : the implications of the appeal court decision.

    Article - En anglais

    The Appellate Division recently overturned a Supreme Court judgement concerning the disclosure of a patient's HIV status by his general practitioner to another general practitioner and a dentist.

    This article examines the content of both judgements with particular reference to its implication for the medical profession, and considers the arguments that may be raised for and against disclosure of a patient's HIV seropositivity.
