Development of a Policy on HIV Infection.
Crowell, Barbara D.
This sample policy, proposed by the Brandywine School District (Delaware), addresses the issue of HIV Infection of employees and/or students. The policy was developed by an AIDS Committee appointed by the superintendent in January 1988, and comprised of members from every area in the school district community. This policy acts as district policy in addressing problems posed by the disease. The AIDS Committee based its policy recommendations on six underlying principles: (1) exclusion by medical decision; (2) development of new practices on handling body fluids; (3) confidentiality of medical records; (4) involvement of school personnel; (5) development of school district trust; and (6) development of an education program on HIV Infection. Policy recommendations include details on the media relationship, the education plan, and district policy on students and employees with HIV Infection. (SI)
