India president approves law banning discrimination against AIDS patients

India president approves law banning discrimination against AIDS patients
- International efforts continue to not only prevent the spread of HIV and AIDS but also to protect the rights of the individuals afflicted. In January the US Department of Justice filed a lawsuit [JURIST report] against New York City for revoking the offer of an emergency dispatch position because the applicant was HIV positive. In June 2016 a group of UN independent human rights experts said that human rights violations contribute to the spread of HIV/AIDS [JURIST report]. In May of that same year California's governor signed Senate Bill 1408 into law, allowing HIV-positive individuals to become transplant donors to HIV-positive recipients [JURIST report]. In 2015 President Barack Obama issued executive order 13703 [JURIST documents] "Implementing the National HIV/AIDS Strategy," which was intended to ensure successful implementation of the the updated national AIDS/HIV strategy.
