"There is no HIV transmission in the workplace"


The President of the State HIV / AIDS Coordinator, Ramn Espacio, stressed that "the risk of HIV transmission at work does not exist", as highlighted in & # 39; Day for non-discrimination of people with HIV at work & # 39; which happened yesterday at the Spanish Youth Council.

Today, director general of Public Services, Javier Rueda, stressed that the current inequality situation is the result of "pandemic alarms" produced in the first years of the disease, when insufficient information is available and barriers to access to public works are made.

At present, the effectiveness of antiretroviral treatment does not justify this discrimination. In this sense, Rueda said that in the Public Administration "we want the best and we cannot allow people to be excluded because they have a disease".

On November 30, the Government approved the Council of Ministers for the elimination of HIV, psoriasis, celiac disease and diabetes from the exclusion table for public works, because this disease does not affect the workplace.
