AIDS 2012: Preparations Underway for U.S. to Host Conference
March 14, 2011
The Obama Administration's January 2010 repeal of a 1987 law prohibiting people with HIV from entering the country has given the green light for the preeminent global AIDS conference to return to the United States for the first time since 1990.
"The epidemic in the U.S. and in particular Washington, D.C., is not very different from other highly affected countries in the sub-Saharan region and other regions of the world," said Katabira. "So, coming here would give us an opportunity ... to share the experiences, learn from each other, mistakes and so on."
