FiercenBed's link is useful for poz US travellers going abroad.

However, for poz non-US residents entering the states, this link is more useful:

"Travel to the US
Although people with HIV cannot legally enter the USA unless they obtain special permission from the US Embassy before travelling, many have, and the vast majority continue to do so with no serious consequences. However, if you enter the USA without this permission you are in breach of US immigration law and could be deported. If you are travelling with medication then this might be found if your luggage is searched. Some people send their medicine ahead of them, but this is illegal and delays may mean you have no treatment during your trip."

So far, the announcement to ease travelling for non-US poz people hasn't come real yet. It wouldn't be a complete lift anyways, it only wants to introduce some new visa waiver. Just hide your meds in vitamin bottles and be careful when you fill out the green entry form if you come by plane, then you should be fine.
