Tell the CDC to Lift HIV Travel Ban

The plan by the federal government to lift a ban on HIV positive foreigners coming into the United States is close to being approved. If the ban is repealed it would allow people with HIV/AIDS to travel or apply for immigration within the country. Currently HIV testing is mandated for those requesting permanent residency, and in some instances the granting of a visa.

Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are seeking public comment through Aug. 17 on the proposal.
