At the beginning of the epidemic, there was a lot of panic generating attitudes of discrimination. Consequently, there was a huge mobilization of people and institutions that have pledged to confront prejudice and reduce discrimination.

Seropositive the Web Site Editor Note: The following text is excerpted from the site maisbrasil.org.br
It is a brief account of what I was able to watch, say, personally. An act of love that loomed up and became a reference in the fight against AIDS in Rio de Janeiro:
A MAIS Brasil - Support Movement for Social Inclusion in Brazil was born at Christmas 2005, from the initiative of the music researcher Renata Cholbi to collect food and toys with friends and through the Orkut relationships website, to donate to the seropositive mothers and children of Hospital dos Servidores of the State (HSE), in Rio de Janeiro. But she did not want to stop there. Meeting with a group of friends in the "Support Mothers and Children with HIV" community, Renata Cholbi, one of the most authentic volunteers in the fight against AIDS, started a social inclusion project, initially aimed at mothers and children with HIV, precisely the first public it was able to attend.
