HIV/AIDS

Strong legal protections for people living with HIV are essential prerequisites to effective risk-reduction and prevention strategies. By fighting discrimination based on HIV status, protecting people’s privacy, and improving access to information about HIV-related legal issues, we can turn the tide and strengthen the health of our communities.

GLAD’s AIDS Law Project is here to help you defend your rights. You can read more about your rights as an HIV-positive person in our publications at right or you can call our Legal InfoLine at 800-455-GLAD.
