U.S. lifts restriction on visas to HIV-positive foreigners - January 5th 2010, 03:57 AM

Washington (CNN) -- Foreign nationals who are HIV-positive will find it easier starting Monday to visit the United States.
The Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention removed HIV infection from the list of diseases that prevent non-U.S. citizens from entering the country.
Advocates for HIV-positive people said the new policy was long overdue, calling it "a significant step forward for the United States."

i think it's good. i don't see why people who are HIV positive should be banned from visiting places. a lot of HIV positive people are HIV positive through no fault of their own, so it's pretty unfair.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
