CHAPTER 112: PUBLIC OFFICERS AND EMPLOYEES; GENERAL PROVISIONS Firefighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, law enforcement officers, correctional officers; special provisions relative to certain communicable diseases.

 

Florida Corrections Commission 1998 Annual Report: The presence of HIV (Human Inmmuniodeficiency Virus) and AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) has had a profound effect on the cost of health care in the correctional setting. The prevalence of HIV/AIDS in prisons exceeds its prevalence in the general population. As the prison population increases and inmates are being incarcerated longer due to stricter sentencing guidelines, the costs of HIV/AIDS will continue to rise as inmates remain in prison through the later, more costly stages of the disease and new treatment protocols are developed.  
Orlando firefighters and paramedic count now 30 and some are near death! We are here to demand that the city of Orlando come clean on its 20-year conspiracy to hide medical records from its fire fighters and other city employees, and make things right. Because of the city's cover up there are fire fighters dying of Hepatitis C, an illness that has been recognized by the state of Florida as one of many job-related ailments that attack fire fighters and paramedics.

 

Tampa Firefighter dies due to complications from Hepatitis-C. Three other Firefighters test positive. These headlines are becoming far to common for Firefighters and Emergency workers. Alan P. Brownstein, President and CEO of The American Liver Foundation, states "Hepatitis-C, as an emerging infectious disease, is one of the most serious public health problems that the United States will face as we begin the new millennium."

 

The Co-infection of HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B and C: The Socio-Economic Impact - State of Florida This paper seeks to ascertain the rate of co-infection that exists in Florida, gaps in treatment, a projection of future costs for how this is effecting HIV prevention and care activities throughout Florida, and a projection of future financial impact.  A short history, epidemiological information, treatment theories, and associated costs are presented for HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, and co-infections between them.  A survey was administered to providers from both the public and private sector to achieve a realistic perspective on hepatitis outreach, testing, and treatment.
