[Correspondence] Refusal to provide health care to people with HIV in France

Refusals to provide care to people with HIV have been reported in the USA,1 the UK,2 and elsewhere in Europe,3 but their frequency remains poorly documented. In 2015, the French parliament examined a law that includes an article on non-discrimination in access to health care and the possibility of doing tests to determine the extent and nature of the discrimination. During the legislative debates, AIDES did a situation testing survey4 to ascertain the frequency and nature of refusals to provide dental and gynaecological care to people with HIV.
