Hello Rizky, thank you for asking.
As you know HIV / AIDS is a chronic infectious disease that attacks the immune system in general. That means the symptoms of the disease are not always characteristic. Symptoms of HIV / AIDS can resemble many other diseases. In order to determine whether someone has HIV / AIDS or not, it is important to know someone's history, especially those involving risky sexual relations and drug abuse. After that, the doctor will conduct various tests to determine a person's HIV status.
In medical ethics, the patient's diagnosis is a secret of the patient and his family. Then the doctor cannot carelessly give a diagnosis to someone other than family. Even in some cases, patients can ask the doctor not to give the diagnosis to certain family members. Therefore, you cannot ask your doctor or friend to give a diagnosis without the patient's consent.
Of course you can take precautions. But as you know, HIV is not transmitted through touch, air, and the use of cutlery or working tools together. As long as you don't have sexual contact with the person, you don't need to worry. You should treat your friends as usual, do not isolate him, because it can have a negative impact on his psychological.
Thus my brief explanation. May be useful. Regards.
