While there has been great progress toward understanding the virus, there are still parts of the world that don't know the true nature of HIV transmission and risk. And because they lack an understanding of HIV, they still have rules and regulations in place that discriminate against those living with HIV. Countries like China and the United States have finally lifted their bans regarding HIV and immigration. But unfortunately there are dozens of countries around the world that continue to limit travel, immigration, and residency based soley on HIV status.
