Father doesn’t believe HIV causes AIDS, faces court battle over treatment

[The father of the HIV+ son] questioned the link between HIV and Aids and believed treatment had side-effects worse than the impact of the virus.

Aids Foundation executive director Shaun Robinson told the Herald there were a mix of different reactions to an HIV diagnosis. “Quite often, people will go into denial.”

… The father told the Weekend Herald his son was a normal, healthy child who loved playing sport. He said the boy did not know he tested as HIV positive when just a few months old.
