Why Govt hospitals not admitting HIV+ mothers- Chandigarh

Despite clear orders from the government to handle all cases of HIV positive mothers, government hospitals have been found to be “insensitive towards them”.

Many HIV positive mothers, who were denied admission to government hospitals during the delivery of their child, have complained to the Punjab State AIDS Control Society.

An official communication from the desk of the project director of the society, Raji P Shrivastava, said, “The office is receiving complaints from HIV positive pregnant women, who have been refused delivery services by the hospital staff and were being treated disrespectfully. Moreover, the status of pregnant women is being made public, which is against the national guidelines to maintain confidentiality of HIV positive persons.”
