AIDS

Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Persons who are HIV-positive, or who have AIDS, are protected from discrimination by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other federal and state legislation. This extends to decisions to buy, rent, or sell. Further, in many states it is considered a violation of privacy to reveal that a former tenant or owner was HIV-positive or suffered from AIDS.
