The Health Care Sector: #1 in HIV Discrimination

A comprehensive analysis of cases handled over the last decade reveals that health care is overwhelmingly the service most likely to be illegally denied to people with HIV and AIDS, making up 76% of our public accommodations cases.  We also found that health care was the sector in which clients facing employment discrimination on the basis of their HIV status were most likely to be employed. We continue to work to ensure access to jobs and services in every field for people with HIV.  With thanks to Masterman High School senior Simon Caskey for the collection and presentation of the data.
