Immigration and Travel

Overview

People living with HIV should not face discriminatory or unnecessary barriers to their freedom of movement.

States that erect entry barriers for people with HIV justify their policies as necessary to protect public health and the public purse. But HIV is not communicable through casual contact. Thus, the United Nations has stated that “there is no public health rationale for restricting liberty of movement or choice of residence on the grounds of HIV status.”

We analyze Canadian and international immigration policies and laws, and work with governments and advocacy groups to ensure that those laws respect the human rights of people living with HIV.

Where people living with HIV face persecution in their countries of origin, or where they seek to be reunited with family members, humanitarian concerns and international law should and often do compel countries to admit them.
