Recently Singapore has lifted its two decade- ong ban on HIV-infected people entering the country, but they will limit their stay to a maximum of three months.
The health ministry said that the ban was installed “given the current context with more than 5.000 Singapore residents living with HIV and the availability of effective treatment for the disease”.
“The policy on the repatriation and permanent blacklisting of HIV positive foreigners was recommended in the late 1980's when the disease was new, fatal and no effective treatment was available,” said a ministry spokesman.
What do you think about this? We feel that it's unfortunate that a HIV positive person can't have their work experience abroad. I guess it would be better if there are given more chances to everyone -including HIV positive people.
