AIDS In Courts Highlights What Makes People INSS
Employer should not look at their employees as objects and much less dismiss them because they carry HIV or have AIDS
Empregador não deve olhar seus empregados como objetos e muito menos demití-los porque portam HIV ou estão com AIDS. A ciência médica já conquistou muitos degraus e raramente uma pessoa, mesmo com AIDS, adoeça seriamente porque há tratamentos preventivos que tornarão o corpo humano quimicamente hostil a determinados agentes etiológicos. Num exmplo simples, uma pessoa que tenha uma baixa na contagem de CD4 que a torne alvo-fácil de uma pneumonia, por exemplo, passa a tomar uma pequena dose diaria de, por exemplo, Bactrim. Este é um exemplo simples e inexato pois, de alguns anos para cá, usa-se, contra a pneumonia, uma vacina que protege a pessoa por pelo menos cinco anos

AIDS, Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, is a disease that arose in the XVth century and had a great impact on contemporary society. The earliest records of human contamination with the HIV virus were in mid-west Africa, at the beginning of the last century. However, AIDS began to spread around the globe between the late 20 and early 70 years. The first record in Brazil occurred in the city of São Paulo, in 80. At that time, most of the infected included men who had sex with other men, ie, homosexuals and bisexual men. In 1982, the Ministry of Health in Brazil launched the National AIDS Control Program, with the goal of dealing with the growing number of cases and avoiding a possible AIDS epidemic. Today, the Brazilian AIDS program is considered one of the most successful in the world. One of the main points of this policy is the universal and free distribution of medicines antiretroviral pelo SUS – Sistema Único de Saúde. Atualmente, o Brasil vem registrando quedas dramáticas em mortes pela AIDS.

However, not everything in our country is flowers. There is still a large and widespread negative stigma in relation to people with AIDS, and protection legal / legal of the HIV carrier is inefficient. As a result, many of them find it difficult to find or keep a job. In day 1o December, World AIDS Day, it is worth reflecting a little on the reality of people with HIV, laws, lack of information, and ways to ensure that the rights of HIV positive people are respected. Brazil that protect people with AIDS. The problem is that the vast majority of the population, whether they are employers or the patients themselves, are unaware of such legal provisions. For example, it is common to observe companies that require HIV testing for admission, although this is considered illegal by Brazilian law. It is a crime to require this test either during the contact process or in the course of work.
Group of businesspeopleIn addition, it is recurrent to see employers dismissing an employee who is virus of AIDS, out of pure prejudice and lack of information, without other logical reasons. Such conduct is also a crime. The prohibition of all types of discrimination is guaranteed in Article 7o of the Federal Constitution. This attitude expresses enormous disrespect and intimidation to the worker with AIDS. Therefore, if someone feels harmed, they should seek the support of the law. The examples reported above are amenable to legal action in favor of the citizen with AIDS. On the 2 day of June of 2014, President Dilma Rousseff sanctioned the law 12.984/14, which punishes 1 with imprisonment for 4 years and fine those who discriminate against people with AIDS. Crimes, for example, deny employment or work, segregate in the work or school environment and disclose the individual's condition with AIDS, in order to offend or take away the dignity of the person. This law means a great step forward for Brazilian society, but it must be widely disseminated so that it can have concrete effects. Another possible way to help in the labor market integration of people with AIDS is integration policies, such as quotas in companies. In 2010, the Chamber of Deputies analyzed the bill6014/09, by Mr Talmir (PV-SP). A idea was to include citizens with AIDS among the beneficiaries of the law 8.213/91, which guarantees reservation of vacancies in companies for people with disabilities. The bill failed to pass, as many of the disease activists did not support the initiative. According to them, quotas would further increase prejudice and negative stigma against such people. However, the quotas would also have a positive side, since the vast majority of citizens with AIDS are not in the labor market, although they can and do want to do so. In order to have a idea, in Brazil, 83% of people with AIDS are of working age, and are fully capable of exercising their jobs very efficiently.It's my city, vector illustration for your designThe biggest barrier that exists today is still prejudice. There must be a great social mobilization, with the help of NGOs and activists in this area, so that the population is aware of the legal provisions that guarantee the rights of people with AIDS, and so that everyone knows that HIV positive people are fully able to work normally. It is still common to see that many employers and co-workers are afraid to work with a person with the AIDS virus either because they think they can be infected by the disease in one way or another, or because they are terrified that the person is quickly debilitated , weak and will die. Current medicine, with the cocktails anti-AIDS, garantem uma excelente qualidade de life para portadores da doença.Por isso, a reinserção dos cidadãos com AIDS no mercado de trabalho deve ser amplamente discutida por toda a sociedade. O preconceito, muitas vezes velado, precisa acabar. As leis dão o respaldo, mas não funcionarão eficientemente se ninguém lutar contra as arbitrariedades que acontecem no dia a dia de um cidadão portador da doença. E a melhor arma contra concepções equivocadas e anacrônicas sobre a AIDS é simples: informação.
