Synopsis by Alice Day

Those who work in the health care professions are aware of the possible dangers of treating HIV-positive patients. Exposure to the blood of these patients can be a daily occurrence in their jobs, and in Physicians and AIDS: The Ethical Response, Vol. 2, workers are refusing to be exposed to the risk. Fear of contagion is only one of the concerns; some feel a personal distaste for the patients, who represent a certain way of life. This production, a winner of a Chris award from the Columbus International Film & Video Festival, offers the viewpoint of several doctors who have seen many AIDS sufferers among their patients.
