Employment and Living with HIV/AIDS

Employment is an essential part of leading an independent, self-directed life for all people, including people living with HIV/AIDS. Reflecting this, DOL is one of six federal agencies responsible for implementing the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States released by President Obama in 2010.

ODEP is one of several DOL agencies participating in carrying out DOL's role under the strategy, with a focus on improving employment opportunities and outcomes and reducing stigma and discrimination for people living with HIV/AIDS. As part of this, in 2011 ODEP convened the first-ever HIV/AIDS Employment Roundtable, which gathered thought leaders from across the nation to specifically explore the intersection issues of HIV/AIDS, disability and employment.

Based on the information gleaned at that conference and subsequent research and collaboration, ODEP developed a suite of Employment and Living with HIV/AIDS resources to assist individuals, employers and service providers understand related issues.
