Wais Mohammad Qarani and Sobia Idrees

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) significantly attributes to social stigmatization, besides being a health concern. It is one of the major responsibilities of the health care providers to practice caution before labeling a person with such diagnosis, as sometimes it is predicted to be false-positive. No doubt, health care employees are not exempted from acquiring the disease. However, inaccurate decisions could cause abundant consequences on a person’s personal and psychosocial wellbeing. Therefore, the higher management team of an entity has the prime responsibility to be fair with the employees and utilize the principle of justice in their actions. Indeed, moral responsibilities and ethical values play an important role in fairly decision-making in everyone’s life. Afghan women suffer from various unhealthy cultural and traditional practices besides other social inequalities. For this, strategies to encourage women in labor market and avoid gender discrimination must be launched. Furthermore, attempts to maintain justice through designing specific policy and protocol to avoid errors within an organization must be prioritized.
