AIDS test outrage
I REFER to your front page news item ''AIDS test plan for Filipinos'' (Sunday Morning Post, February 7). The plan for mandatory AIDS testing for overseas employees returning to the Philippines is an outrage and another appalling example of the Philippine Government's discrimination against its people as they did not impose AIDS testing on the US military during its presence in the Philippines.
Mandatory AIDS testing is a violation of human rights. I wonder if the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency administrator, Mr Felicisimo Joson, had himself tested when he said: ''I don't care about human rights.'' The question is what will the Philippine Government do when someone is found HIV-positive? Will they provide full medical care? As treatment is very expensive, I wonder? NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
