Another comment regarding the suggestion we made on the 7th about testing truck drivers for HIV. Today on ABC's World News Tonight, they said the truck drivers avoid getting tested because they are afraid of the stigma of being HIV positive. But what if they were at risk of losing their jobs if they refused to get tested? What if testing were made a mandatory requirement by the trucking companies? Would that put more pressure on them? Additionally, can they be rewarded in some way for going to get tested?
