From: Theorizing the complexity of HIV disclosure in vulnerable populations: a grounded theory study

Memo 3. Access to health service and disclosure facilitated by the health worker, December 9, 2015
(…) Some people, especially men, are tested positive when they are brought to the hospital by the family members due to some illnesses (The fever kept on increasing, we had to take him to the hospital). In case of a positive test result, the doctor will also suggest the spouse and children to have an HIV test (The doctor also asked for my blood for the check up). In this situation, HIV infected people are helped by the health worker to disclose the HIV positive status to the spouse and family members with an oral consent.
