The Pros And Cons Of Workplace HIV Testing Measures

Workplace HIV Testing

Workplace drug testing is a tool that many companies  use for hiring new employees and to ensure the safety of workers and reputation of the business.

A worker with a drug habit may be an unreliable, unsafe worker. While many have come to accept this workplace drug testing as the norm, there are concerns over the ethics and practices.

Some employees may feel unfairly singled out from the rest of the workforce and fear discrimination. If this is the current state for workers with recreational drug habits, the problem is worse for HIV-positive employees.

Outstanding US Aids Prevention and Educational Programs

HIV Aids Prevention

Many people in the US will recall the aids epidemic of the 1980s. This was when many charities and organizations started to help those infected and to combat HIV transmission by providing Aids Prevention programs.

Despite strong efforts from many groups, HIV and AIDS prevention remain significant healthcare issues in the US. It is easy to overlook the national issue with global problems and funding sent to African projects.

There is a clear issue of financing in America and work to do AIDS prevention. Since the beginning of that epidemic, 675,000 people have died of AIDS-related illnesses in the country.
