Well, the average people who refuse to Working with HIV positive is, of 20% worldwide as UN research shows.

This 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,

Thus generating the undeniable: The Social Death.

This study was conducted in more than twenty countries.

AIDS was the subject of a meeting that started on a Sunday in Austria, where the 18th UN International Conference on AIDS and brought together for five days scientists, politicians, religious, volunteers and artists to discuss a disease that has taken more than 30 million lives.

And that, in 2008, unfortunately, there were reaching a number more than thirty-three million people, human beings, as the UN reported.


Social death Has cause and consequences

And that is why, “due to” discrimination against the carriers of the virus that causes AIDS,

Well, Acquired Immunodeficiency, which is not transmitted by social contact in the workplace. Therefore, the Brazilian Dilma Rousseff government prohibited, at the end of May 2010, that companies in our country so manly to require the examination of HIV detection of their workers, in the hiring process.

However, another legal loophole would have remained, but in the same legislative process it was determined that employers cannot also test professionals who are already part of the staff of any companies.

People like that

The report also clarifies that, among respondents worldwide, 61,2% would agree to work side by side with people infected with the AIDS virus, while 20,1% prefer not to share the same workspace under any circumstances.

However, here in Brazil, prejudice is even more overwhelming:

More than fifty percent of respondents say yes, they would work alongside people with HIV.

See that almost thirty percent of people would refuse to do this anyway. Well, they would prefer, according to them, to lose their jobs!

Social death and AIDS. Only six countries on the planet have higher rates of discrimination than these in Brazil!

On the other hand, among the other 19 countries, such as:

  • India,
  • Jamaica,
  • Mexico,
  • Japan,
  • the United States,
  • Russia (!) and South Africa, the 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 greater in the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean!

And note that, surprisingly, eighty percent of respondents people showed and show positive attitudes!

The research on the topic of social death and AIDS was carried out by Zogbi!

Thus, the survey, which was carried out in partnership with Zogby International, interviewed 11.820 thousand people!

Interviews were conducted over the internet between 30 March and 27 April 2010.

So, although it seems little, in Brazil, there were 804 interviews, and that draws our social profile with gray inks!

Despite this resistance to sharing activities in the workplace, Brazil has shown itself to be one of the countries most averse to travel restrictions against HIV carriers. An obvious nonsense!

Measures that prevent infected people from entering countries.

On the other hand, 75% less Brazilians respondents do not agree with this type of limitation - in China, 61% of respondents approve the measure.

Brazilians are against travel restrictions, but would not work together.

And I don't understand!

Social Death and AIDS Only People without vision, of the problem itself and of life, do not recognize The relationship

Editor's note. It's a contrast because, without work, these people, living with hiv and unemployed gets a job can't laugh they can afford to leave the country, EXCEPT FOR JEEP, GOING TO PATAGONIA… <3


The UN report says that Brazilians are divided as to the capacity of the government (s) to face AIDS. According to the survey, half of the respondents believe that the country knows how to fight the disease, and a little less than half, about 40% states that Brazil does not face the problem as it should face.

For Brazilians, what prevents a more effective work to fight the disease is, first of all, the availability of resources, followed by prejudice against carriers and the amount of health services.

The result of this is that a quarter (25%) of Brazilians say they are subject to becoming infected with the virus. In the United States and South Africa, this rate is around 5% and 14%, respectively.

Social Death and AIDS in _My Life_

I, Claudio Souza, went through a two-step selection process at one of these labor outsourcing companies.

I passed and had been hired to work in what would be the outsourced's favorite.

I handed over all the documents for registration and I was told to wait for up to fifteen days to start training.

The Closed Spot

Without going into too much detail I I went there on the 17th to find out that my place had been closed. The way I was caught, totally unprepared for that situation, I ended up returning the documents that proved the hiring.

Among them one in which they had data to fill in to open a salary account.

So I lost the only document that would allow me to prove anything against them.

And that could also be scanned and post here as proof that the company I would name here, of having discriminated against me for discovering, by untruthful means, that I am a PLHA...

All this despite then-elected President Dilma Rousseff has instituted a law that makes CRIME any act of discrimination to the person living with HIV or AIDS. Click here to learn more.

Tell me please. Does love immunize?
