Abstract: These are the proceedings of a hypothetical case presented at the Wednesday Clinical Meeting, by the Department of Medicine, Parirenyatwa Hospital. The case was based on actual life experiences that were obtained in the care of HIV/AIDS patients. The discussion was guided in such a way as to place emphasis 01 ethical issues and less on clinical considerations. The aim was to draw on participants’ experience and practici of medicine in today’s Zimbabwe. For the purpose of discussions, it was accepted that absolutely correct opinions in ethical issues of medical practice in relation to AIDS/HIV may not exist, and that the discussion was as important as any conclusions that may be reached.
