Gostin, Lawrence O.
JAMA. 1990 Apr 11; 263(14): 1961-1970.
The Aids Litigation Project, which monitors the legal repercussions of the AIDS epidemic in the United States, is operated by the American Society of Law and Medicine and the Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public Health, and supported by the National AIDS Program Office of the U.S. Public Health Service. Gostin's article is the first in a two-part series reviewing case law and human rights commission rulings tracked by the Project since 1981. The series covers 469 AIDS cases decided, settled, pending, or filed at local, state, and federal levels. Part I discusses civil and criminal cases involving issues ranging from AIDS education to AIDS and the prison system. Accompanying the article are tables of cases broken down by court system and by subject matter, and a subject compilation of 320 case citations. (KIE abstract)
