Any policy about screening must therefore consider the potential conflict between individual and societal interests (2). The pertinent principles begin with the right to bodily integrity, as expressed in English common law. The idea of protecting the autonomy of the individual leads to an emphasis on informed consent and maintaining the confidentiality of medical information gathered about a patient. A second ethical principle involves balancing the good and harm to an individual that may follow so that there is a net effect of good.
In fact, a sizable minority of those questioned thought that those with AIDS should be completely isolated from the rest of society (13). Such prejudices lead to widespread discrimination against people who have AIDS or who belong to groups at risk for AIDS. S. states (as well as the federal government) have declared that their handicap antidiscrimination laws apply to AIDS, and many have enacted AIDS-specific legislation. The application of handicap laws to persons with AIDS brings with it the requirement of "reasonable accommodation" to enable an otherwise qualified individual to fulfill perfonnance criteria.
