Ahead of World AIDS Day, which is being observed globally today, December 1, heads of some of the world’s largest companies have called for an end to travel restrictions for people living with HIV. More than 40 CEOs have signed an unprecedented pledge urging the repeal of laws and policies in 45 countries that still deport, detain or deny entry to people solely because they are living with HIV. The CEOs represent nearly two million employees in industries from banking to mining, travel to technology. “HIV travel restrictions are discriminatory and bad for business,” said Chip Bergh, President & CEO of Levi Strauss & Co. “Global business leaders are coming together to make sure we end these unreasonable restrictions.” (AB)
