Health care is a human right.

In May 2020, GLAD and a group of organizations advocating for people living with HIV filed an amicus (friend-of-the-court) brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) ensures that all Americans, including people living with HIV, are able to access quality, affordable health insurance. Gutting the individual mandate would disproportionately harm people who are living with HIV, LGBTQ+, women, disabled, low-income, or BIPOC.

UPDATE: On June 17, 2021, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. Read the ruling here.
