Since its first appearance in the United States in the early 1980's, AIDS has become a sweeping epidemic. Medical and political communities have struggled to develop policy that will protect the public from the spread of the disease and safeguard the rights of those afflicted. This third edition of AIDS and the Law discusses legalities associated with the disease, including an individual's rights regarding employment, education, healthcare, and insurance under various federal, state, and local laws. It also provides an overview of the medical aspects of AIDS, the testing procedures, and some common treatments currently available, as well as brief outlines of its background and history.
