A third of adult patients accepted HIV test

Many adults refusing HIV test at Singapore hospital, but 'I believe, with time and education, people will no longer opt out' of testing, Lionel Lee, executive director of Action for AIDS (AFA), was quoted as saying.

I hope so too ... . More education efforts to stress on the social correctness of getting tested, and reduce the link or correlation between having such a test and the type of lifestyle.

Hopefully very soon, to tell someone else that one has taken a HIV test suggests that one is being responsible to others, rather than an indication that one's lifestyle is questionable.

Even better, to tell someone else that one hasn't done any HIV test suggests high possibility of a high risk lifestyle.
