People living with HIV travel without problems in many areas of the world every day. However, being HIV positive can sometimes mean you need to do some additional preparation before leaving home.

For example, some countries have restrictions on people with HIV entering or staying in the country, so it’s important to check if any regulations are in place before you travel. Knowing which vaccinations you need, and which you can receive is also an important consideration. In some places, infections that pose a greater threat to people with weakened immune systems, such as malaria, may be common, so knowing how to prevent or avoid them is important.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
