Individuals living with HIV experience not only its devastating assault on the body but adverse effects on their employment, finances, relationships, insurance, and housing. Two new books look at the impact of AIDS on all areas of life, with particular attention to legal problems and the rights of those with positive status. Part of a series of ACLU handbooks, The Rights of People Who Are HIV Positive tackles the subject in four parts: the disease itself and the related testing, public health, and confidentiality issues; day-to-day issues involving insurance, family law, and healthcare decision-making; discrimination in housing and work; and AIDS in prisons, schools, as a factor in immigration, and among IV drug users. The topics are broached using a question-and-answer format, and each chapter is documented with citations to source material.
