Hello
Sorry to hear about your brother.

I'm an HIV+ man, who was living in the middle east myself, I had to leave before I was deported, as u know being HIV over there is illegal, so there are a lot of things to consider while he is still there.
First: where did he test positive? how are his levels? if he is not in need of immediate treatment, he can take his time to leave and arrange everything over there.
If his levels are low and needs treatment, being an american, it would be best for him to go to US. I considered the India option myself, because I have friends there, but being a non-indian, access to treatment is very limited, there would be a lot of red tape and things to arrange before getting it.
If he wants to do further testing before going home, there are many good clinics in lebanon, I've heard good experiences from them. I wouldn't recommend disclosing or doing more tests in the middle east, as I said before, he could be deported, I'm sorry to say all this, but I think he must know also so he can do things accordingly.
If you want to ask me anything else, I'm all ears.
