Society: Anti-serophobia day organized on Saturday April 30 at Howell Center

0

The AIDES Saint-Martin Association is organizing this Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. a new day to fight against serophobia at the Howell Center shopping center. An oh so important event to denounce the discrimination and stigmatization of which HIV-positive people are victims.

Today, a person with HIV undergoing treatment does not transmit the virus: this is the Tasp revolution (Treatment as prevention / Treatment as prevention). An acronym that translates a reality too little known to the general public. To overcome this lack of knowledge that feeds stigma and fear of screening, AIDES unveils a digital and colorful device on the occasion of this day!

This day for the fight against serophobia will allow the association Aides Saint-Martin to address received ideas about HIV in order to deconstruct them and thus fight against the discrimination of which HIV-positive people are still victims.

Between medical advances, methods of prevention, erroneous information that continues to circulate and the representation to change, the fight against serophobia is not lacking in work. But this will also have to continue in the texts and legal provisions which continue to concern people living with HIV (PLHIV), both in the medical field and in everyday life, for finance, insurance... Subjects which are real problems sometimes to project oneself, to work, to have both personal and family perspectives, in short to lead one's existence like anyone else. #STOPSEROPHOBIA. _AF
