UK P&I Club Crew health advice on HIV and AIDS

UK P&I Club said that it had received reports of an incident involving a crew member who was repatriated due to complications arising during treatment for tuberculosis (TB). It later transpired the difficulties in treatment were due to an HIV positive status, which was undiagnosed during a basic medical. Where permitted by local law, the UK P&I Club PEME (pre-employment medical examination) includes consented HIV screening and counselling.
