Abstract:

How does the law deal with the AIDS epidemic and the controversial issues it has generated? What right does a person with HIV have to privacy, to employment, to treatment, to public services, or to insurance? What are the legal obligations of health care workers, blood banks, prisons, people who have sex with one another? This fair-minded book provides a crucial - and accessible - assessment of the status of AIDS law today. Written by leading policymakers, attorneys, scholars, and physicians, it provides up-to-date discussions of such topics as transmission and treatment, public health measures to stem the epidemic, HIV issues in the health care setting, employment and housing discrimination, HIV education, liability for risky behavior, HIV in prisons, and insurance coverage of people with HIV. It also includes chapters on criminal law, privacy, the twin epidemics of HIV and substance abuse, and reproduction and parenting issues.

The volume is based on an earlier work, AIDS and the Law, hailed by Abigail van Buren ("Dear Abby") as a book that "should be read by everyone who is concerned about the AIDS epidemic." AIDS Law Today will be an invaluable resource for legislators, educators, counselors, health officials, employers, and anyone with a professional or personal need to grasp the legal dimensions of HIV disease.
