KOERTING, Ana; POLO, Rosa; VAZQUEZ, María C  y  AMO, Julia del. The Social Pact for the Non-discrimination and Equal Treatment Associated with HIV development. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2019, vol.93, e201912115.  Epub 07-Sep-2020. ISSN 2173-9110.

Advances in treatment and care have improved the life expectancy and quality of life for people living with HIV. However, those infected with HIV remain exposed to the social stigma that continues to be associated with this condition and sometimes experience discriminatory treatment in areas such as health, education, the judiciary or the workplace, and in access to benefits and insurance.

There is a lot of evidence that the discrimination and stigma associated with HIV alienate people from prevention, diagnosis, treatment and quality of life services. This situation is exacerbated by social, economic and cultural status, as social and structural inequity facilitates increased discrimination and unfair treatment in the daily lives of people living with HIV.

In response to this situation arises the need to establish a Social Pact for Non-Discrimination and Equal Treatment Associated with HIV, agreed and signed by social and institutional agents key in the response to HIV. Its aim is to eliminate the stigma and discrimination associated with HIV and AIDS, ensuring equal treatment and opportunities, non-discrimination, respect for fundamental rights and diversity of those affected.

Reducing discrimination against people living with HIV is one of the priority objectives of the Ministry of Health, Consumer Affairs and Social Welfare's Strategic Plan for the Prevention and Control of HIV and other STIs, currently extended to 2020. It is aligned with the UNAIDS cross-cutting objective of zero discrimination and with the fourth objective of the 90-90-90-90 strategy, which should ensure that 90% of people with HIV and viral load suppression have a good health-related quality of life.
