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.
