Prohibiciones de viaje revelan el estado de la discriminación por VIH

December 1, 2018 - En el 30º aniversario del Día Mundial de la Lucha contra el Sida, aún son comunes en el mundo las restricciones de viaje para personas con VIH, incluyendo prohibición de ingreso, denegación de permisos de trabajo y residencia, e incluso deportaciones

HIV-related travel restrictions currently exist in more than 50 countries and territories across the world. Most of them place limits on the amount of time HIV-positive foreigners can stay, while a smaller number of countries ban entry altogether, or deport travellers found to have HIV.

The restrictions were largely adopted by governments in the early 1980s when little was known about HIV and its spread. Despite medical advances that have made HIV a manageable disease, the restrictions remain, perpetuating stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV, according to the UN.
