Russia looks at compulsory HIV database

Wed 23 Apr 2014 In: International News

Russia is considering introducing mandatory fingerprinting for people with HIV, whose details will then be stored in a national database. MP Roman Khudyakov has put forward an amendment to a federal bill on fingerprinting, calling for a database of all people carrying dangerous contagious diseases. It would include fingerprints and medical records. If passed, it would also apply to visitors to Russia. The bill it would piggy back on would order every Russian resident to be fingerprinted.
