HIV Law and Policy Project
The HIV Law Program was established to address the legal needs of people affected by HIV.
The first initiative of the program, the Los Angeles HIV Law and Policy Project (LA HLPP), is a new collaboration between DRLC, Inner City Law Center, the Los Angeles County Bar Association's AIDS Legal Services Project, and UCLA School of Law. The project serves as the centralized intake and outreach program for HIV-related legal issues in Los Angeles County and performs litigation and policy work on issues that affect people living with HIV or AIDS. Through LA HLPP, DRLC also provides legal assistance and supports HIV-related civil rights litigation for people living with HIV in Los Angeles County who are challenged in accessing legal help or services related to fair employment and housing, privacy, access to treatment, public benefits, immigration, and advance medical or financial planning.
