Obama Signs HIV Organ Policy Equity Act

The AIDS.gov blog features a statement by U.S. President Barack Obama on the event of his signing into law the HIV Organ Policy Equity (HOPE) Act, “a bipartisan piece of legislation that allows scientists to carry out research into organ donations from one person with HIV to another.” Obama said, “The HOPE Act lifts the research ban, and, in time, it could lead to life-saving organ donations for people living with HIV while ensuring the safety of the organ transplant process and strengthening the national supply of organs for all who need them” (11/22).
