New act addresses discrimination, assists persons living with HIV

New act addresses discrimination, assists persons living with HIV
- The new act seeks to protect the rights of PLHIV, ensuring there is no discrimination against them in healthcare services, education, employment, public facilities, holding public office, property rights and insurance. Under the act, hospitals including private will not be permitted to delay surgery or charge different rates for services for PLHIV. "This would amount to discrimination as it imposes a burden on a person based on HIV related grounds," senior advocate and director of the lawyers collective Anand Grover said.
