HIV carriers in Canada not obligated to disclose condition to potential sex partners

The Supreme Court in Canada has just given HIV carriers in the country the right to hide their condition from potential sex partners - as long as they have a low level of the virus and wear a condom. You can read more about it HERE

Going to Canada soon? Zip up, biko! lol

As a doctor i can tell you that HIV drugs can make the virus undetectable .Once undetectable u cannot transmit it via sexual contact.Using condoms is just precautionary. In the United Kingdom there are already ongoing discussions to allow doctors that are HIV positive back to the theater (Exposure prone procedures). Linda HIV is not a killer any more.

This is just wrong. people, abstinence is the way to go o. Hulk Hogan has a sex tape too, watch it here www.raqueldaily.blogspot.com

Amenze said...

well, everyone is supposed to be cautious. the people that know their HIV status and are receiving medication in canada, are less of a threat than the people in Nigeria who do not know their status, are not receiving care and are spreading the virus because they assume they are "safe"
The ruling is not the enemy here because it protects both parties. Ignorance and lack of access are the problem.

At Anon 8.29pm.being undetectable doesn't mean dey cant spread Ȋ̝̊̅† to a partner.wonder why u all r screaming.Do u guys know how many couples in Naija have one of d partners as being positive?In Naija most pple dat r positive refuse to tell their spouses dat they r HIV positive cos of fear of them leaving.so most pple hide their status from their husbands n wife.Doctors unfortunately cannot disclose the status to d other party cos of Dr-patient confidentiality,all u cαη do is keep counselling and trying to persuade d person to tell his or her partner.so u cαη see dat Naija case aint different.

Hiv positive on meds is better than those that assume they re negative and never even bother to go for test.i know pple who bg positive for 20yrs and had never being sick or go to hospital. Wen on meds and undetectable u cant transmit hiv.

Dr Anon 8.29pm.undeetectable HIV viral load rreduces d ability to infect people.Ȋ̝̊̅† doesn't stop Ȋ̝̊̅† just rreduces. Ȋ̝̊̅† so there is still a risk of infectivity wen u have sex wit someone dat has a low viral load and please don't say HIV is not a killer anymorre cos u havent seen its effect on Nigerians esp the youth who seem to be more affected dis days.pls do not sppread wrong informaation abeg.we all shud check our HIV status regularly esp if we have risky lifestyles and if result is positive commence antiretroviral drugs ie if d person meets the criteria for Ȋ̝̊̅†

I live in Canada, and work as a HIV Community Health Educator for a Health Centre. One of my responsibilities includes providing up to date information on HIV to the clients I work with. HIV today, is very different from the HIV of 25 years ago. I have met people here, that have been living with the virus for almost 20 years. They got married, had babies and partners and babies are HIV Virus free. It is only in Africa, due to corruption, lack of education and awareness is HIV considered a death sentence. Fine, there is no treatment for someone living with HIV, at least not now, BUT with the current medications available, especially when detected early, they suppress the viral load to a point where the risk of transmission is highly, very highly reduced. However, with common sense, you should not be going "bareback" in the first place if you are not in a trusted or monogamous relationship. Even if the person does not HIV, there are other STI's that are also harmful like herpes virus (no cure), Hepatitis B, that causes liver damage.
For those of you condemning this law, at least, it used to be a crime in Canada to have sex without disclosing your status. In Nigeria, what laws are there to even protect both the affected (the public), and the infected (those living with the virus)? Please lets remove the log in our eyes before thinking of the specks in another persons eye.
