well here in the US, the army won't accept individuals with asthma, certain chronic diseases, heart defects, the lost goes on and on. Some of these diseases make it very difficult for a person to do the physically demanding parts of thier job. Some of them can be made worse but a lot of the physical activity that being in the military requires.

I think HIV is sort of a slippery slope though. This person could quite possibly be able to do the physically demanding portions of his service without any problems. But what happens if he gets hurt? Are his fellow soilders going to dress a wound he might get until trained medical help arrives? Should they be required to?

If i'm not mistaken, in the US Army, HIV is a dischargeable medical condition (if you test positive while in service) and they won't accept you into basic traning if you are positive.
