AIDS 2019: A Roundtable Discussion of Current and Emerging Legal and Policy Issues

In the 33 years since the first AIDS cases were identified in the United States, the HIV epidemic had evolved from tragic misnomer (the so-called “gay plague”) to global pandemic (once deemed a national security threat) to (in the West) manageable chronic condition. The legal and policy issues and responses animating that turbulent history have evolved as well, and not always wisely. Members of the American Bar Association AIDS Coordinating Committee — established in 1987 to identify, analyze, and address these issues — discuss progress made and challenges remaining to achieving an “AIDS-free generation.”
