Tracking Aids Patients Via Microchip?

Ad Feedback

Aids patients in Papua, Indonesia may soon be required to have microchip implants, so government officials can keep track of them.

Aids activists call the plan abhorrent and say it violates human rights.

But Indonesian lawmakers say the microchips would be implanted only in those who are sexually active. They say it would help identify those who deliberately infect others with the disease.

Indonesia has one of Asia's fastest growing HIV rates and Aids cases in Papua are 15 times the national average.
