irresponsible care
Oct 26, 2005

If a mother allows a family memeber with full blown AIDS to care for a toddler, is this an irresponsible action that puts the child at a high risk of HIV?

Response from Ms. Breuer

No. If a family member remains ignorant of the facts of HIV transmission more than 20 years into the epidemic, potentially exposing a person with AIDS to discriminatory treatment by other family members, should that person be allowed around an impressionable toddler?
