Social Death 1 / 3 of Brazilian workers refuse to work with seropositives
The average number of people who refuse to Working with HIV positive Is, on average, 20% in the world according to UN research shows.
Survey by UNAIDS seven years ago indicated that almost 30% of Brazilians would refuse to work alongside people with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, generating the undeniable: The Social Death. This study was conducted in more than 20 countries.
AIDS was the theme of a meeting that began on a Sunday in Austria where the 1 8-7th UN International Conference on AIDS was held and brought together scientists, politicians, religious, volunteers and artists for five days to discuss a disease that has already Took more than 30 million lives and that, in 2008, had reached a number more than thirty-three million people, according to the UN
Because of the discrimination against people with the AIDS virus, Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, which is not transmitted through social contact in the workplace, the Brazilian government banned, at the end of May 2000, that companies Of our country so manly, to require the examination of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus virus, its workers, the hiring process, and even the professionals who are part of the staff of any company.
The report further clarifies that among respondents worldwide, 61,2% would agree to work side by side with people infected with the AIDS virus, while 20,1% would rather not split the same work space under any circumstances.
However, here in Brazil, the prejudice is even more acute: More than fifty percent of the respondents say yes, they would work alongside people with HIV and that almost thirty percent would refuse to do it anyway, saying that they preferred , You see, losing your job.
Among the countries that participated in the UNAIDS survey, the prejudice is only more shocking than in Brazil in countries such as Latvia, Indonesia, China, France (!!!!!!) Egypt and Latvia.
On the other hand among the other nineteen 19 countries, such as:
- Russia (!!!!!!!!!!!) and
- South Africa, prejudice has been much lower than in Brazil.
According to the UNAIDS report, AIDS is still considered one of the world's major problems.
- The acceptance of people living with HIV is higher in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean, where 80% of people demonstrate positive attitudes.
The survey, conducted in partnership with Zogby International, interviewed 11.820 1,000 people over the internet between 30 in March and 27 in April of 2010. In Brazil, they were 804 interviews. Despite this resistance to sharing workplace activities, Brazil has proved to be one of the countries most averse to travel restrictions against HIV carriers - measures that prevent infected people from entering countries. At least 75% of Brazilians interviewed do not agree with this type of limitation - in China, 61% of respondents approve the measure.
Brazilians are against travel restrictions.
Editor's note. They are stingy because they know that those who can not get a job can not afford to leave the country
The UN report says that Brazilians are divided over the capacity of the government (s) to face AIDS. According to the survey, half of the interviewees believe that the country knows how to fight the disease, and a little less than half, around 40% states that Brazil does not face the problem as it should face.
For Brazilians, what prevents a more effective work to combat the disease is, firstly, the availability of resources, followed by prejudice against the carriers and the amount of health services.
The result is that a quarter (25%) of Brazilians say they are prone to get infected with the virus. In the United States and South Africa, this rate is around 5% and 14%, respectively.
I, Cláudio Souza, went through a two-stage selection process at one of these outsourcing companies and had been hired to work on the outsider's eyesight. I handed over all the documents to register and was told to wait for up to fifteen days to be called for training.
Without going into too many details I went there on the 17 day to find out that my position had been closed. The way I got caught, totally unprepared for that situation, I ended up returning the document where they told me to fill out the data for opening a salary account. So I lost the only document that would allow me to prove something against them and that could also be scanned and put here as evidence that the company that I would name here discriminated against me for discovering, by unconfessable means, that I am a PLHA ...
All this despite the then-elected president Dilma Rousseff having instituted a law that makes CRIME any act of discrimination to the person living with HIV or AIDS. Click here to learn more
