AN HIV-positive Papua New Guinean woman claims she has seen people with HIV/AIDS buried alive by relatives who could not look after them.
AIDS workers in PNG yesterday said the claims were unconfirmed, but there were cases of mistreatment of HIV-positive people by frightened relatives.
Margaret Marabe told the Post-Courier she saw people with HIV/AIDS buried alive by relatives at Tari in the Southern Highlands.
PNG has the highest incidence of HIV in the Pacific.
