There are several potential reasons:

  • They don't know they are infected
  • They asked their friends and got bad advice
  • They don't care
  • They are ashamed
  • They figure it is a god sent punishment frothier sin
  • They are afraid of doctors
  • They think they will have to pay more than they can afford
  • They are afraid others will find out
  • They see it as a chance to hurt others by passing it on
  • They don't think treatment would help
  • They are more afraid of treatment than the disease
  • They believe in alternate medical practices
  • They think they can pray their way to a cure
