President Obama announces end to HIV/AIDS travel ban

In remarks during the signing of the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Extension Act of 2009, President Obama stated that “if we want to be the global leader in combating HIV/AIDS, we need to act like it. And that’s why, on Monday (November 2, 2009) my administration will publish a final rule that eliminates the travel ban effective just after the New Year.”
