New Law to Help AIDS patients

This is good to see.

The government is seeking to set legal guidelines preventing discrimination against people with AIDS and HIV. The Health and Welfare Ministry said Tuesday it plans to submit a bill that bans unfair treatment of AIDS and HIV patients in the workplace. It would guarantee them equal rights to promotion, leave of absence and the like.
For far too long, Korea seemed to have its head in the sand when it came to the AIDS issue.
