Repeal the HIV Travel Ban

PFLAG is proud to join Immigration Equality and other allied organizations from across the country in calling on Congress to keep its promise to rescind the travel ban on HIV positive individuals entering the United States.

A joint statement endorsed by PFLAG and other supportive groups states, in part, that, "This draconian policy has negative consequences for our nation. Medical professionals, researchers, and other exceptionally talented people have been blocked from the United States. Since 1993, the International Conference on AIDS has not been held on U.S. soil due to this policy."

"In addition, the United States is out of step with the international community and most other countries," the letter says. "The International Guidelines on HIV/AIDS and Human Rights, produced jointly by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and UNAIDS, state that 'there is no public health rationale for restricting liberty of movement or choice of residence on the grounds of HIV status.'"

The groups conclude their Congressional appeal by writing that, "We strongly urge you to reject discrimination and stigma towards people living with HIV/AIDS . . . "

This is how a great spell caster helped me in getting rid of my HIV disease.
I am Nelson allen from United Kingdom i was diagnosed of this disease for over three years without knowing until January this year. I thought all hope is lost, I was down I couldn’t join my colleagues in doing some certain things, truly I was in a great pain, I tried all my best to be happy again but I can’t, until a good friend of mine introduced a great spell caster to me who is DR.Aye, saying that she saw many testimonies on how he helped people getting rid of their HIV Virus he gave me his email which is ayespellalter@gmail.com I spoke to him and being a kind man he is he quickly answered me. I told him my problems, he asked me to buy some items, and though I couldn’t find the items I sent him the money to buy the items for me. Which he did successfully, he cast the spell and asked me to go for medical checkup which I did, I didn’t believe when the doctor told me that am HIV negative, truly am still short of words, I thank DR.Aye for the great deeds, if you are having a similar problem please contact him Ayespellalter@gmail.com or call +2349038511070
