I looked into it briefly.  You can get a retirement visa if you have sufficient assets and income regardless of HIV status.  Mexico has HIV clinics in Puerto Vallarta which seems to have a sizable American and Canadian retirement community if you don't speak Spanish (like me).  It also has major medical and a commercial airport.

Another idea is Tijuana.  You are close enough to San Diego to cross over if there was a medical need that you couldn't meet in Mexico. 

Here's an article from 2011 that might be of interest:

Ward, I am ready to jump ship on Thailand too.  Too much red tape nowadays.  Anyway, i did live in Playas Tijuana back in the 1980s.  And I enjoyed it.  It is relatively simple as that close to the border didn't require any paperwork. 

I comutted to work in San Diego.  But this was before hiv.

Generally, the main consideration now it the narco wars.    Safety is an issue in many places.  (I say this and I lived in South Los Angeles  for 6 years).

I considered working in Ecuador in 1996 but they required HIV- to live there permanently.   Dont know current status.

Seems like the world is pretty much on lockdown till  a vaccine for covid19  is developed.

Yes I agree about vaccine timetable, I holidayed in Tijuana in 1992 it was OK then' but we shall have to wait and see how this all pans out, at last some governments have started to realise that your country's health should be your number 1 priority, higher taxes will  need to be paid by the rich' how much money does a person need' is Cayman islands accounts ,, money hording for what? Their was a Irish American chuck Feeney'(YouTube) gave all his billions away to good causes' I think the world is about to change ,greed is an illness that needs to be addressed'
