Ingush authorities intend to oblige newlyweds to be tested for HIV

Starting from 2018, the Ingush Ministry for Public Health plans to oblige people before getting married to get be tested on the presence or absence of HIV. This was reported by Marem Arpakhanova, Ingush Minister for Public Health.

"Anyone may ask his or her partner to be tested for HIV before getting married. There is nothing wrong with that," the Minister said.

Marem Arpakhanova has noted that in the republic, the registration and treatment of HIV-infected people are being carried out "at a very qualified level," the TASS reports.

Earlier, at a meeting with officials from the Muftiate, Ingush leader Yunus-Bek Evkurov raised the question about introduction of such certificates. This has been reported by Kharon Bogatyryov, the press secretary for the Ingush Muftiate.

According to him, it is assumed that in case if no certificate is presented, a religious figure will not bless a marriage.
