Today, on World AIDS Day 2016, the Department of Justice reaffirms the rights of people with HIV/AIDS to live free from stigma and discrimination. For the more than 1.2 million people in the United States with HIV, the ADA guarantees each of them a full and equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from all our nation has to offer. Through our enforcement, education and outreach efforts, the department will continue striving to make the promise of equal treatment a reality for people with HIV and AIDS throughout America. In memory of those we lost from AIDS, and in support of those currently living with HIV, we will forge on with uncompromising resolve until we reach the goal of an AIDS-free generation.
