HIPPA has found a way to ensure the confidentially of the all people with medical conditions especially those that are suffering with the ever contagious HIV/AIDS (Avert, 2009). Human immunodeficiency virus also known as HIV is the precursor for AIDS. Human immunodeficiency virus infects and damages part of the body's defenses so there is little fight against infections, namely the white blood cells known as CD4 helper lymphocytes (pronounced: lim-fuh-sites) (The Nemours Foundatio, 1995 - 2009). HIV is spread when the infected persons bodily fliuds such as for example semem, vaginal secrections and blood enter the body of the non-infected person. Only trace amounts of the infected bodily fliud is needed to infect a person.
Some of the main benefits of using these guidelines and the biomedical model however can be more easily seen when looking at an infection like HIV and AIDS.

Physician-assisted suicide is unethical based on the Hippocratic Oath, but is ethical based on the patient’s views – which sometimes outweigh the morals of a physician. Physician-assisted suicide first became an issue when our society decided that it was neither moral nor ethical for a physician to help end a terminally ill patient’s life. According to Katie Pickert, Dr. Jack Kevorkian brought lots of attention to the topic during the “epic assisted suicide battle of the 1990s” (1). People who argue with Kevorkian for physician-assisted suicide feel that by helping a patient end his or her life peacefully is helpful to family and friends.

Nonetheless, the health care facilities may see an increase in funding because they are not spending has much income in advertisement to educate individuals about HIV/AIDS.
