Traveling with Meds
Sep 13, 2006

Your reply on traveling with meds was/is very irresponsible. as many readers of this site are outside the US, even your colleauge Dr Conway, you should ALWAYS warn people traveling with HIV meds to the US or any US Territory that travel with HIV meds is grounds for immediate and permanent refusal of entry to the US. The US holds the honour with a handful of countries world wide, such as Iran, Irag, Mynmar. You answer could serious affect the future movement of an HIV patient for life!

Response from Dr. Henry

Our clinic takes care of over 350 HIV+ persons born outside the US (mostly Africa). Many of them travel back and forth outside the US.In addition, many of our other HIV+ persons travel outside the US. I have not had a single case of persons having their medication taken from them or their travel interrupted. We try hard to provide documentation of their prescriptions in case an issue comes up. I have heard of other persons/patients having problems but our own experience with travel has been favorable if some effort is put in ahead of time to avoid difficulties. The issue is an important one but again our rather extensive experience has been reasonable. KH
