MMAA is proud to support service members living with HIV and advocate on their behalf.
Thanks to modern science, there is no legitimate reason to deny service members living with HIV the ability to continue to serve their country without arbitrary restrictions on their assignments and ability to deploy. Major advances in the treatment of HIV have rendered the virus untransmittable. As the military struggles to meet recruiting goals, the last thing the Department of Defense should be doing is reinforcing harmful stereotypes and discharging highly trained service members based on outdated science.
It’s critical that the military update its outdated regulations unnecessarily discriminating against these American patriots.
MMAA is suing the Trump-Pence administration to ensure all service members, including those living with HIV, are treated equally with the dignity and respect they deserve.
