HIV positive and applying for Government Jobs in India
« on: November 13, 2020, 11:29:28 pm »
Hi everyone,
I tested positive in March of 2020 and taking ART medication since then. Is there anyone here who can guide me to any forum or website or personslly knows if an HIV positive can apply for government jobs in India? Do we have to disclose our HIV positive status while applying for government jobs? Does the medical fitness test also test for HIV test? Is it mandatory to declare our HIV positive status while undergoing medical fitness test?

HIV test is not mandatory and not required for government or private jobs in India as per Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and The Act prohibits any form of discrimination against persons suffering from HIV or AIDS in employment, educational institutions and in providing health care services.

Such people shall not be discriminated against while residing or renting property, standing for public or private office, and for provision of insurance

The Act provides that no HIV test, medical treatment or research will be conducted on a person without his informed consent.

You may or may not choose to disclose your HIV status but it is not mandatory.
