S Korea HIV patients suffer from stigma

Patients forced to move to general hospitals after country's only specialised centre loses its status over abuses.

    In South Korea, HIV/AIDS patients are being forced to receive treatment temporarily in general hospitals after the only specialised centre in the country was stripped of its status over allegations of abuse.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Seoul on how the controversy has provoked a larger debate about attitudes towards AIDS patients.
