HAVE WE FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE HIV / AIDS?
Thursday, 30 March 2017
Cases of HIV transmission among young people increase. It is true that at present, it has been possible to reduce mortality and it is possible to live with HIV / AIDS with a certain quality of life. The infection is no longer considered deadly, but from lethal it has become chronic. It would look as though young people might have lost awareness of the risk of transmission and maintain still many unsafe sex practices. Since 2015, 30% of the positives are under 30 years of age in Spain. Moreover, cases below 20 are also detected. In ACASC you can come to take the test for free confidentially in just 15m.

Speach Against AIDS
Tuesday, 2 December 2014
Time stops for the policies of HIV / AIDS in Catalonia; new infections and stigma. The Committee December 1st (C1D), the unit-AIDS NGO platform of Catalonia, held this December 1st a new World AIDS Day under the theme "agreed Rights". With this motto we want to value the networking that takes place from the C1D and its member in defense of the rights of all persons entities, showing the knots that bind us to the entities and all those who are part: the HIV, health, pleasure, diversity, equity or information. Likewise, we want to make visible, as part of this work, the National Agreement to address the HIV-related stigma and anti adopted on March 6, 2014 the Parliament of Catalonia. This visibility of a landmark agreement signed by all representatives of all citizens of Catalonia political parties, has a bittersweet aftertaste. From here solemnly in the Catalan Parliament approval, none of the commitments that it has been assumed contemplated by the institutions responsible for implementation. No talk about resources, we talk about responsibility, we speak of political will. The C1D brings you defending a model that prioritizes care for people based on the defense of their rights since 2012. In that year, 9 May, under the slogan "-recortadas, Excuses, + rights", asked the very Honorable President of the Generalitat of Catalonia not to give back to the policies of HIV / AIDS in Catalonia. From here this date despite the commitment of the President himself, far from improving the situation has only worsened. Excuses are maintained over time. In 2012, the excuse was the Spanish government cuts. The 2013 internal management of the government of Catalonia and the lack of budget. The 2014 issues of coordination between different departments of the government of Catalonia and the lack of resourcing. We none of them is valid. Just one year, in commemoration of this data indicated the same Honorable Minister of Health, Mr. Boi Ruiz ago, publicly pledged to seek a new model that would answer in this difficult situation and recognize the experience and capacity of the entities over 20 years we articulated quality and response throughout the territory. Although we have looked actions consist of responding to and shaping this new model, the reality of today, end of year is that we have no concrete answer, a fact which still further aggravated the situation described. Over the years we have amply demonstrated our institutional loyalty in these turbulent times but we can not believe in building a new model of country without clear that ensuring the rights of all persons belonging is a line insurmountable red. The feeling that accompanies us in commemorating this new World AIDS Day is that the country can definitely give us back unless there is a radical change of substance and form in the model presented as a public health model. This situation may result in the disappearance of associations that during all these years we have worked together with government being and feeling part of the health system. But the most serious and is not an assumption but a fact is that the immobility of current public health policies of the government of Catalonia, with policies exist prevention and direct care for people living with HIV each more devalued turn are already to date unable to respond effectively to the complexity of HIV / AIDS in Catalonia response. Policies can stand, but bear in mind the consequences of inaction. While no liabilities are incurred infections continue to increase and stigma against people living with HIV remains a reality in the daily lives of many. From the C1D and "agreed Rights", we demand a response responsible, forceful and imminent by the institutions of this situation before it happens unsustainable.
