Friday, July 23, 2021 - 16:00 to 17:00

Join National AIDS Trust and Zehrah Hasan from Garden Court Chambers to explore how the protections for migrants living with HIV facing removal have developed and how the HIV sector can support clients at risk of removal.

In April 2020, the Supreme Court gave judgment in a vital case about the application of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) in ‘medical grounds’ removal cases. In AM (Zimbabwe) v SSHD, the appellant, who had been in the UK since 2000, was living with HIV and was on an anti-retroviral drug in the UK that was not available in Zimbabwe.

The judgment has a significant impact in cases where a person’s removal from the UK would lead to a significant reduction in life expectancy due to lack of access to appropriate treatment in the country of return, including some people living with HIV. National AIDS Trust is joined by Zehrah Hasan, a barrister at Garden Court Chambers, to explore how the case law regarding HIV and immigration removal has evolved, and how understanding the AM (Zimbabwe) ruling will allow us to better support clients and service users living with HIV at risk of removal.

This event is intended for people working in the HIV sector and will take place on Zoom. Tickets available for free via Eventbrite
