U.S. Ban on HIV-Positive Visitors, Immigrants Expires

After Obama finalized repeal of the ban in October, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced that Washington, D.C., would host a World AIDS Conference in 2012. The meeting, which has not been hosted by the United States since 1989, is expected to bring together the world's top researchers and experts on HIV and AIDS.

About 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV/AIDS, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and more than 56,000 new infections occur every year.
