President Zack Statement Re: World AIDS Day

ABA President Stephen N. Zack

ABA President Stephen N. Zack

It has been 30 years since the first AIDS cases have been diagnosed in the United States. On World AIDS Day, we remember the more than half a million Americans who we have lost to this disease.  We renew our commitment to overcoming the stigma and discrimination that persist, which blocks effective HIV prevention, testing and treatment; and we recommit to protecting the civil and human rights and the health information privacy of people with HIV/AIDS in the United States and throughout the world.

For more information about the ABA’s work on HIV/AIDS visit the ABA AIDS Coordinating Committee website at www.abanet.org/AIDS.

    Good job Steve! It makes me so proud to know I am a member of a group that cares enough to fight for the rights of those who have to deal with all the issues that come with this horrible disease.
