A Conference for All? Travel Ban Threatens IAC 2012
Who's really welcome at IAC 2012?
At the closing of this year's conference, President Obama delivered an enthusiastic video message, welcoming "all" delegates to the capital in 2012. In reality, however, strict U.S. travel regulations ban two groups heavily impacted by HIV -- sex workers and drugs users. The restrictions, if left unchanged, threaten the conference's efficacy as a forum for all, further disenfranchising two of the major populations it claims to serve.
