China Could Soon Lift HIV Travel Ban, State Media Reports

April 21, 2010

"China could lift a longstanding ban on HIV-positive foreigners entering the country as early as this month, state media reported Wednesday," Agence France-Presse reports. The country first introduced the ban in late the 1980s, the news service notes (4/20). "Insiders said the ban may be dropped after the State Council, China's Cabinet, decided on Monday to make changes to laws barring foreign HIV sufferers from entering the country," China Daily writes. "Although no timetable was disclosed, the changes are likely to be announced before the official opening of Shanghai Expo on May 1, which is expected to attract 4 million visitors from abroad, suggested Hao Yang, deputy director of the Ministry of Health's disease prevention and control bureau," China Daily reports (4/21).
