The United States has lifted a 22-year ban preventing anyone with HIV or Aids from entering the country.

President Obama said the measure was not compatible with American ambitions of becoming a world leader in the fight against the disease.

The ban was enacted in the 1980s at the height of fears of a global Aids epidemic.

Rachel Tiven is from the campaign group Immigration Equality.
