Should people diagnosed with AIDS be put on a registry similar to sex offenders?

Should people who know that they have AIDS, whether born with it or contracted it, be put on a registry in order for potential sexual partners to look up? Would it be an invasion of privacy or a useful tool to stop the spread of the sexually transmitted disease?

Here's the deal. Last time we tried to separate someone that had AIDS it was an 11 year old kid in the 70's. His life was miserable. If everyone had a proper education about AIDS, it wouldn't be a problem. However, the majority of Americans are not aware that just talking or hanging out with someone who has AIDS will not spread the disease. This theoretical registry would ruin many lives and it would be an invasion of privacy.

People in schools are taught about AIDS. Does the government really care about privacy anyway? It would only help. The people who have AIDS probably could have used one and would be a lot better off.

People in school won't be the ones worrying about people having AIDS. The people who will look at the registry most are the people who don't want to get AIDS. I personally don't care about not wanting to get AIDS. Why? Because there is only one way to transmit AIDS. If I was on that level of intimacy in a relationship, I should hope that the other person would have told me about their condition.

Yes, because it could very easily stop the spread of the disease. However, I don't think it right to hunt down and test people suspected of having AIDS top find out if they do, indeed, have the disease. If they know that they have it, however, they should be on a national registry.

Should people diagnosed with Influenza be put on a registry similar to sex offenders?

Influenza is the world's most infectious disease. Influenza is a any one of a number of wily RNA viruses that adapt quickly and spread even quicker. They are spread through direct and indirect contact (touching a doorknob that harbors the virus) and through the air via coughs and sneezes. Most of the viruses cause basic flu symptoms: body aches, coughing and sneezing, chills, fever, fatigue, headaches, and congestion. Some, however, are EXTREMELY DEADLY. The Spanish Flu killed more than 40 million people worldwide between 1918 and 1920. The pandemic was one of the worst in recorded history.

Influenza is found everywhere. It peaks during the winter season in both hemispheres, breeding like crazy and flitting through the population. Flu vaccines, or “shots,” are available. They’re made on an almost yearly basis, using the most common influenza bugs at the time. They are fairly effective, but flu viruses are known for fast mutation rates and thus circumventing immunities. If you want to stay well this flu season, get your shot and remember to wash your hands frequently. Also keep your distance from the infected.

BE SURE TO CHECK THE INFLUENZA OFFENDERS REGISTRY! KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM THE INFECTED!

I am against such a registry because it is an invasion of privacy.

Many would say that that would be a breach of privacy. But, I ask you, is it not more important to reduce the prevalence of AIDS?

The path to reducing the prevalence of AIDS is a simple and straight one: SAFE SEX.

Actually NO SEX is the most effective way to reduce AIDS.

But who'd want to stop toying with temptation by not fulfilling their lustful desires.

Choice #1 - Stop doing something that is short term lustful pleasure

Choice #2 - Have a chance of catching HIV

Simples.

And just who is going to enforce safe sex? The government is already in our schools, in our churches - now you want them in our beds?
