HIV causes acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The ministry of Health and Welfare is due to present the revised bill of HIV/AIDS, which will seek to protect the rights of HIV carriers and AIDS patients with a motive to remove all the discrimination against them.
Regulations such as sick leave will be adhered to in a similar manner to HIV/AIDS patients, and they cannot be fired because of AIDS/HIV. And those employers who go against this regulation, will be liable to a year's prison confinement or a fine of 3 million.
A Ministry Official said,``The revision will greatly expand the right to labor of those suffering from HIV/AIDS. So far, the government could not discipline those discriminating against them in employment, promotion or job training, as there has been no disciplinary regulation on the cases.''
