The measure was first announced in August of last year but will now be honoured by the new government, with the rule expected to come into force in March. Minister of...

Trump’s attempt to fire HIV-positive airmen was just blocked a second time

The Trump administration’s latest bid to have two HIV-positive airmen discharged from service has been blocked by courts for a second time. The two men, referred to by the pseudonyms Roe and Voe, were given discharge orders in 2017 on the basis that they couldn’t be deployed to the Middle East due to their HIV-positive status. Both men are on antiretroviral treatment, have no symptoms, and have been pronounced physically fit to deploy by their doctors.
