Do you have any opinions on this?  Or are you just sharing it for the heck of it?

In the dark ages I used to test once a year....

It was emotionally tough...

Then I forgot to test.

Then I forgot about it all

Then I got caught

Korea had a mandatory once every five year testing. incidence was low.
It was a shame and disgrace, but incidence was low.

They removed the mandatory test and now more and more people are infected ...

I think it worth looking at mandotory testing (even among the older population) with an open mind.

Earlier into treatment, earlier into a safer zone

That is my take on it

NVP/ABC/3TC/... UD ; CD4 > 900; CD4/CD8 ~ 1.5   stock : 6 months (2013: FOTO= 5d. ON 2d. OFF ; 2014: Clin. Trial NCT02157311 = 4days ON, 3days OFF ; 2015: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02157311 ; 2016: use of granted patent US9101633, 3 days ON, 4days OFF; 2017: added TDF, so NVP/TDF/ABC/3TC, once weekly

Eric read the damned link!
Its about SELECTIVE mandatory testing.  Not of the whole citizenry.  The government/police testing people on certain "lists", and obviously perhaps against their own will....

It's not even the selective testing that really bothers me. 

It's the fact that the people found to be poz are going to be potentially thrown out of their homes.

But I suppose that's a step up from a similar previous measure that had people who tested poz imprisoned and had their names published in the paper. 

Really sounds like a witch hunt.

I would have thought the EU wouldn't allow a gross violation of human rights in one of its member states.
