This book examines the issues surrounding the growing epidemic of women and children with HIV and AIDS. It explores such issues as discrimination in employment, housing, health care, and education, and looks at medical testing, confidentiality, reproductive freedom, income assistance, child welfare, and child custody. Focusing on the federal and state statutes that protect women and children with HIV and AIDS from discrimination, this book also examines the statutes that govern the operation of the public systems to which significant numbers of women with HIV and AIDS turn to for financial and medical needs, housing assistance, and social services. Clear and accessible, this book is vital reading for anyone interested in learning more about the policies, provisions, and legal concepts surrounding this issue.
