China's CDC Releases Report Urging End to HIV/AIDS-Related Job Discrimination as High Profile Lawsuit Advances

December 2, 2010

China's Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CCDC) released a report "on the need for China to tackle HIV/AIDS-related job discrimination" just as "a Chinese court has breathed new life into a potentially precedent-setting AIDS discrimination lawsuit," the Wall Street Journal's "China Real Time Report" blog writes. A "22-year-old aspiring teacher known only by his nickname, Xiao Wu, lost a high-profile discrimination lawsuit against the local education bureau that had rejected his job application after discovering he was HIV-positive," but his lawyer "revealed that an appeal last week has been accepted," according to the blog. "According to a summary from Xinhua (the full report has yet to be released), the CCDC collected multiple examples of institutionalized discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS in places ranging from government offices to bars and beauty parlors, ultimately concluding that mandatory HIV testing of workers in the country should stop" (Wang, 12/2).
