Anne-christine d'Adesky fears immigration won't be at the top of the agenda at the ongoing AIDS Conference in Toronto. The award-winning San Francisco-based journalist and author of Moving Mountains, a collection of field notes from her years researching AIDS globally, says foreign policy makers are too afraid to take on the issue of health care for immigrants with a communicable disease like AIDS. She calls for national public health policies to be integrated so immigrants and citizens alike will be treated equally when it comes to health issues, which Ms. d'Adesky views as a human rights issue.
