We've had an unreal number of girls here who didn't know they were HIV+ until they gave birth, and their baby was tested!!
What really gets me is that sometimes a student is IDed as HIV+, but teachers aren't told, only the nurse and/or counselors - some of us teach things like silkscreen, and kids accidentally cut themselves with a knife - and I've cleaned up students' blood after sending them to the nurse. So it would be nice to know ahead of time - though I understand the need for confidentiality, and that some teachers would stigmatize the student - still, it would be nice to know. (I finally invested in rubber gloves.)
