Nací en 1995, 12 años después del descubrimiento del VIH y cinco años después de que la infección llegó a mi país. No había pasado mucho tiempo desde la gente empezó a murmurar contra el tal conocido como "SIDA" en ese momento. Se suponía que si " te contagias " de la enfermedad tus días estaban contados y que se podía esperar total desprecio de la sociedad. Eso es lo que nos pasó a nosotros, a mis padres y a mí.

I was born in 1995, 12 years after the discovery of HIV and five years after infection came to my country. It had not been long since people began to murmur against that known as "AIDS" at that time. It was assumed that if you "caught" the disease your days were counted and you could expect total disregard from society. That's how it happened to us, to my parents and me. In July 1994, my sister Andrea was born; at 4 months old she became ill and doctors did not know the reas...

Pagar por los tratamientos, un acto perverso en contra de los más afectados por el VIH: los pobres. Si, en Honduras las personas con VIH, pagamos por los tratamientos antirretrovirales y por los exámenes de carga viral y CD4, lo cual es un límite para el acceso a la atención. Este tema se ha venido tocando desde hace mucho, en demanda que los tratamientos sean gratuitos, pero los gobiernos han hecho oídos sordos ante este reclamo, y es que en Honduras los pobres sostienen...


Selling the Treatments?.... YES.

Pay for treatments, an evil act against those most affected by HIV: The poor. Yes, in Honduras people with HIV, pay for antiretroviral treatments and viral load tests and CD4, which is a constraint to care access care. This topic has been playing for a long time, demanding that treatments should be free, but governments have turned a deaf ear to this complaint. In Honduras the poor are sustained of the bureaucracy and corruption that is increasingly outrageous. About 70% of...

Today is the last day of the AIDS conference, it has been such a great experience and opportunity that obviously is once in a lifetime. The meeting were great but for the entire week I've been asking: where are the Latin Americans representatives at the conference?. It seems that there are no Latin Americans at the conference at all, great disappointment because there's a lot of struggles going on, specially in Central America. We had an little space today on the plenary room w...
