People living with HIV/AIDS still encounter discrimination today: in the workplace, in healthcare institutions, from insurance agencies, and from society in general. Know your rights and find support groups to help you if you are a victim of discrimination, or help prepare your workplace to accommodate employees with HIV/AIDS.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • High medical costs and an inability to maintain employment due to illness can place particular strain on a person with HIV when it comes to keeping housing, or obtaining and maintaining insurance. Government Web sites (which have a “.gov” at the end of the Web address) or housing coalition Web sites can tell you what resources are available if you are experiencing housing and insurance problems.
  • If you’re an employer or a person with HIV who wants to make sure your office is compliant with established policies and practices, government Web sites are another good bet to find the latest information on workplace standards.
