HHS/CDC RIN: 0920-AA26 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: Medical Examination of Aliens: Removal of HIV Infection as a Communicable Disease of Public Health Significance 
Abstract: Under the authority of section 212(a)(1)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and section 325 of the Public Health Service Act, the Secretary of Health and Human Services promulgates regulations outlining the requirements for the medical examination of aliens and a list of any “communicable disease of public health significance” that make aliens ineligible for entry into the United States. HIV is currently included in this list of communicable diseases as defined in 42 CFR part 34: Medical Examination of Aliens. CDC is proposing to remove HIV as a “communicable disease of public health significance” in 42 CFR part 34.2(b). This action aligns with an amendment in the United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Reauthorization Act of 2008, signed on July 30, 2008, that removed language in the Immigration and Nationality Act that explicitly prohibited HIV-positive non-citizens from entering the United States without a visa waiver.
