IMA: Doctors Must Treat Patients with AIDS


The ethics committee of the Israeli Medical Association (IMA) ruled that  physicians, according to the medical code, must treat all patients, including those diagnosed with AIDS or carriers of HIV.

"Society's treatment of AIDS patients and HIV carriers is tainted with ignorance, superstition and alienation," said Ethics Committee Chairman Prof. Avinoam Reches. "The medical community is tasked with the responsibility to prevent such beliefs from permeating the medical world."
