State Statutes Dealing With HIV and AIDS: A Comprehensive State-by-State Summary (2004 Edition), Staff of Volume 13, Law & Sexuality (2004)
This is a 2004 update of the comprehensive survey of HIV/AIDS related laws first published by the journal Law and Sexuality: A Review of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Legal Issues in 1995. The citations are now somewhat dated, but this remains an invaluable resource in cataloging the breadth and depth of laws related to HIV.
"As in the original version and the 1998 revised version, the summaries are divided into nine broad categories: Criminal Law, Education, Employment, Housing, Insurance, Research, Social, Medical Services, Testing, Reporting, and Miscellaneous. Because a number of statutes have application to more than one category, the statute is included in the most relevant category and then cross-referenced at the end of the other applicable categories. Cross-referencing is also provided between summaries in a given category. Important definitions are listed at the beginning of each state summary and reference back to these definitions is made within the summaries. Finally, case law that interprets a statute as it relates to HIV or AIDS is noted."
