HIV Positive patients get lots of complications and are admitted routenely in General Hospitals all over the country and the are give all possible care and treatment.Many survive due to early diagnosis and prompt treatment.However they are less previleged @ other patients due to stigma attached to the disease.Many hospitals over charge them but they cant pay as they loose lots of money on drugs.One Hospital in Gujrat paraded a woman with a label ,that is an isolated incident.HIV positivity has ceased to raise eyebrows .

Yes, the hospitals still view the HIV+ as outcasts, because that is due to the l;ack of social awarness.
