  1. Fulltext. AIDS and the limits of control : public health orders, quarantine, and recalcitrant behavior.

    Article - En anglais


    We undertook a survey to document the extent to which public health powers have been used to warn or restrict individuals infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) whose behavior poses a risk of transmission to others.

    In the period from 1981 through 1990,24 state health departments either had no mechanism for receiving reports about individuals whose behavior posed a risk of HIV transmission or took no action if they had received such reports.
