David W. Webber, editor of the invaluable AIDS and the Law, has authored two new documents to help practitioners and advocates understand and apply the amendments to the ADA and recently released EEOC regulations. A new essay, EEOC's New ADA Regulation: What Does it Mean for People with HIV? examines what Webber considers the most salient points concerning HIV as a disability. That essay is accompanied by a Reference Guide to HIV as an ADA Disability, which presents the parallel texts and citations for key terms and concepts from both the amended ADA and the new regulations.
The Center for HIV Law and Policy challenges barriers to the rights and health of people affected by HIV through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources. We support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change that is rooted in racial, gender, and economic justice.
