Chinese city passes AIDS rights law

The Chinese city of Suzhou in Jiangsu province has passed the country's first law to protect the rights of people with HIV/AIDS, Agence France-Press reports. People with HIV/AIDS and their families are guaranteed equal employment, education, and health care rights under the new law. Employers also will be denied access to AIDS patients' medical records. It's unclear whether other cities in the Communist country will follow Suzhou's lead. There was no comment from party leaders in Beijing.
