How does being HIV positive affect my rights?
The South African Constitution has a Bill of Rights that protects all people. This means that people living with HIV/AIDS have the same rights as any other person. No employer can require that a job applicant have an HIV test before they are employed. You can also not be denied a job because of your HIV status or be discriminated or refused any services in any way.
