Contrary to popular belief, the Soropositivo.org website is not the site of an NGO or a work done by many people. The site Soropositivo.Org was for 14 years the work of only one person: Cláudio Souza, a seropositive who has lived with HIV since 1994 and that in 2000, idealized and published since 1º of August of 2000 the site, titled at the beginning of " Seropositive Home Page ", whose greatest pretension was to be a kind of diary of the life of a person living with HIV. This sentence was once a Truth. Today I have the cooperation of Mara Macedo in the indispensable revision of my translations, the dilettante and constant work to Beto Volpe that revises translations and has taken the heavy burden to translate an article with more than ten pages, dealing with AIDS and disability and, in these days Today, I had the gratifying satisfaction of getting the contest and the collaboration and Meliname (ghost Writer) that will soon start
This is a reference to the visitation of the site seropositivo.Org based on information from Google Analitycs
With the publication of the site and many questions on the subject, I soon realized that little was information on the internet about HIV / AIDS, available almost exclusively in the Ministry of Health website at its most basic content, which led me, as a carrier virus, the research and disseminate news and articles on all aspects, not only HIV / AIDS but about the various sexually transmitted diseases and in particular on progress in the AIDS cure, giving the site the ultimate goal of disseminate information, clarify and raise awareness about the prevention and fight against prejudice in society.

At first there were several difficulties to because I knew absolutely nothing of HTML, but with time and experience the site was becoming a news repository and information about HIV and sexually transmitted diseases and became an ideal of life with which, despite many difficulties, including financial to keep it in the air, I'm not able to give, and to which I dedicate with love, almost all my time available for research articles and news, illustrations and text translation of numerous pages that make up today. It Stress that more than 4000 pages that have been placed offline for several reasons, as they become counterproductive, because they have fed hopes did not materialize or because I was asked, by this or that journal, I to retire and I say, without fear of error, which own the largest database on HIV, AIDS and related in the hands of an individual "individual".
This is the first version of Seropositive Home Page, in August 2000
In December 2009 this site was G1 matter, as you can see below, by clicking on the picture will be sent to the original matter in another window
I was talking to a few days ago with a person and I showed the administrative part of the site and he can thus visualize everything that I made unavailable to the public for having seen, some time later, that "someone, among the intricate network of researchers and editors from other sites have reported something that could no longer be a source of hope because clinical trials in humans have resulted in undesirable or even dangerous side effects. To return, after some time of conversation, he told me that he was sure that the largest database on HIV and AIDS, as well as several subjects intrinsically linked to the central focus, telling the history of AIDS in Brazil and in the world, in Hands of a physical person, it's mine!
Although I have never received support from government, I will continue doing my job to the avoidance me physical resources to do it!

On 1º December two thousand I was invited to participate in the chat with UOL guests(The link also opens ...) Unfortunately there was a fall on the server and part of the conversation got lost; but it is worth reading what can be preserved and you can read what happened (* in a reality so different from these years of the 10 decade), in the years 2000 by clicking here.
Today Soropositivo.Org can be read in 58 languages, thanks to a partnership with GTRANSLATE which provides the instant translation service, is accessed by more than 100 countries, among others, such as USA, Portugal, Mozambique, Italy, South Africa, European Union, Angola, Norway, Germany; currently has more than 500 pages full of information online and more 4.500 pages archived in database, which contains the history of AIDS in the last sixteen years, receives from 20.000 to 30.000 monthly visitors with an average of 2.000 page views per day, and among visitors many health professionals and NGOs.
During these almost 16 years of existence has been present in various media, such as participation in the program of MTV Erotica, whose band have here and I wonder if anyone can do the recovery work of a VHS tape to a digital format; We were mentioned twice in the Showcase program where Taz was still the host and granted more than two minutes to present the site.
I also received the diploma of Law Abiding Citizen issued by the Citizenship Portal, and was accepted as a member of Ashoka Entrepreneurs
And it was the first time they gave this commendation to a cyber activist! I gave interviews to the newspapers Estado de São Paulo, Folha de São Paulo and G1; I participated in Astrid's show on the Multi Show channel, whose name escapes my memory, forgive me Astrid; won the Top Blog award 2013 in 1 by the academic jury and (in 2014 there was no contest) and recently the recognition of AUTOMATIC that manages the WordPress service, with the granting of 3 years of free hosting in the business plan, best hosting plan for WordPress which has a cost of $ 299 annuals, which otherwise would not be how to be paid and maybe this site would have ceased to exist and I would have died of sadness ...

In 2014 was created fanpage Soropositivo.org on Facebook (link opens in another in another window) where the posts of the site are published, with 5.784 followers and Twitter followers 1.188 followers.
Currently I can count on the help of my wife Mara in the revision of translated texts and do site maintenance my goal daily, trying
to spread knowledge and awareness of people, seropositive or not, about the clear truth that being a carrier does not change the character of the person (tip of Sílvia Almeida in a video in this
site) trying to show those 3o% of the Brazilian population that they would not work in an environment with this "type of person". Trina and three percent, that is to say, is a third of the workforce in the country and this is a very expressive number!
Anyway, we are this, four people. Of these, three are HIV positive trying to make a difference, for the better, in this complex world that is the world of people living with HIV or AIDS.
- Cláudio Souza Editor and Translator HIV + 22 years ago
- Mara Macedo - Proofreader and writer HIV + ha 24 or 25 years
- Bob Volpe - Ombudsmen, with precious views on HIV + publications for over 25 years
We put here some of the documents that prove the recognition we received.
I place here my photo to show that here the dilettante, loving work and not a "fictional character"
When the deadline given by the AUTOMATIC, I do not know what awaits me, but I think they renew this benefit.

No use calling, however great your anguish, I give a damn hard to keep the dishes rolling. I get from 8: 00 to 22: 00, from Monday to Friday.
Rooting around in my files, I found, in a Gmail folder, some things that I consider important to show:
