This brief front-and-back handout provides answers to frequently asked questions about HIV, immigration, and the HIV Ban. The HIV ban is no longer in effect as of January 4, 2010, and the handout helps individuals determine how the lifting of the ban will affect them. Specifically, it discusses what this means for current applicants, prospective applicants, and those seeking to visit the United States, and provides advice about next steps. It also provides contact information for further information.
CHLP fights stigma and discrimination at the intersection of HIV, race, health status, disability, class, sexuality and gender identity and expression, with a focus on criminal and public health systems. As part of this work, we support movement building that amplifies the power of individuals and communities to mobilize for change rooted in racial, gender and economic justice. We do this through legal advocacy, high-impact policy initiatives, and creation of cross-issue partnerships, networks, and resources.
