Sarah celebrates victory on US HIV visa ban

Good news that the campaign to get the USA to lift the visa ban on people with HIV has paid off. And congratulations to our local MEP Sarah Ludford for her role in making it happen.

It’s a great example of how the EU can work to defend ordinary people’s rights against unfair government or corporate policies. Like getting a better deal for consumers on roaming mobile phone charges. Not something you’ll hear from the Eurosceptics…

    Hello Kev,

    The latest as far as I’m aware is that the Bill has been passed by the Senate but has not yet become law. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7512422.stm

    It is currently with the Senate Judiciary Committee. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d110:SN02486:@@@C
