Note the Soropositivo.Org editor. In this video, it is evident how little was known about AIDS. Not conceived that could be caused by a virus. Years of Lead. Here in Brazil the patients were isolated and the food was placed on the floor, the insulation door.

Activists, experts and relatives of people with AIDS charged today (1º), World Day to Combat AIDS, more awareness campaigns about the disease. In 1º Carioca Meeting to Fight AIDS, made at the Cultural Center Cord of Bola Preta, they assessed that the disease has migrated to the poorest and most vulnerable populations. Participants of the meeting concluded that AIDS will only be overcome with the confrontation of gender violence, homophobia and poverty. Women and young are among the main victims in the country, according to the Ministry of Health.

AIDS and Poverty"The underprivileged population is the one that suffers. AIDS was located among the less privileged sectors, among the poorest, the youngest, Gay Boys and the elderly. The richest, when infected, have health insurance, leave the country for treatment, "said the Brazilian Association Project coordinator AIDS interdiscipline (Abia), Vagner de Almeida. In his opinion, a way to address the problem is to put AIDS on the public agenda, as was done there 20 years, clarifying and warning about the disease and prevention methods.
This is the same assessment of the representative of the International Community of Women Living with HIV / AIDS (ICW), Juçara Portugal Santiago. She believes that stigma and prejudice are the biggest challenges to contain the transmission. In addition to tackling poverty and collecting actions to combat gender violence, she advocates more knowledge. "I see people reacting today in the same way I saw them when I entered this world in 1992. At the time, Brazil had no medicine. There was no talk about condoms and there was a lot of prejudice, "he recalled. Today, she suggests that women, for example, test the female condom and lose their aversion. "Women have difficulty using [the female condom] and attribute that responsibility to men. But after she wears it, she feels safe. It no longer depends on the negotiation [of the condom] with the partner or partner, "he commented. Vagner de Almeida, who attended the International AIDS Conference in Australia in October, advocated even more treatment and prevention options that do not rely solely on condom use. "How many women can not negotiate condom use with their partner? How many young people use it once, twice, then fall in love and drop it? And the condom may eventually burst. It may have a problem or may not be well used. It is necessary to have condoms [for both genders] and retrovirals. "During the event, activist Cazu Barros, who lives with AIDS and has been dedicated to disseminating information about the disease, denounced treatment problems. It is not enough for the health network to only provide the retrovirals: it is necessary to guarantee complete health care, he affirmed. "In the [medical] consultation you go to pick up the monthly medication. He does not have access to other specialists like dermatologist, neurologist, dentist, psychologist, and that does not help. " Barros also denounced at the meeting that the drug Kaletra, indicated for patients with AIDS, has been missing for two months at health posts in Leblon and Lagoa, in the south of the city. The Municipal Health Department did not clarify the reason for the problem in the units.
