Minority Rights: Discrimination against persons with HIV+ in Venezuela

The Supreme Court of Justice of Venezuela (TSJ) declared unfounded and "unfounded to appeal" the help application presented in this Court by the Foundation "Reflejos por Venezuela" which they want HIV patients to have health benefits, including insurance policies.

Members of this foundation hold a press meeting where they express that this decision is an infringement of the Human Rights of those persons with AIDS.

Dr. Adrian said with this decision, the persons that already have an insurance policy would stop having a right contemplated in the Constitution of the country and also in the International Declaration of Human Rights, signed by Venezuela. The decision could affect also persons with other sexual transmission diseases, including young adults and children. This foundation says they could take actions to International Organizations.
