HIV Test During Incamp Training

Compulsory HIV screening during ICT. Was told policy was implemented at start of this year to all conscripts, regulars & reservists in all branches. A Dr said 2% of blood tested at hospitals are infected.

Loathe getting pricked by needle & still have to take ippt later, however through this mean, is the best possible way to force large numbers of local males tested.

I got a feeling this HIV thing is creeping up faster than the flu pandemic if not why compel so many to be tested?
