1. Imagine that a public health agency has proposed a policy requiring all adults and adolescents to be counseled and screened for HIV every year to determine who is HIV positive among the population. This policy would be used to determine those who are HIV positive and those who are not, otherwise called HIV negative. Those who tested positive for HIV not only would receive the proper treatment they need but also would have to disclose their HIV status to all their current and former sexual partners.A policy such as this has never been considered for the United States, probably because it would open countless heated debates for all types of issues that involve ethics and civil rights. The age-old public health debate between coercion of individuals and protection of the public would certainly be an issue should such a policy ever be considered.In 1.5-2 pages (double spaced) discuss:Who would be opposed to a policy such as the one being proposed by the public health agency, i.e., who would oppose a policy of mandatory annual testing and disclosure to all former and current partners?Which stakeholders (individuals, communities, organizations, and members of government) would be most likely to support such a policy and why?Which stakeholders (if any) would be likely to be against such a policy?
