Universal Periodic Review of Argentina

In this report, we discuss the implementation of Comprehensive Sexuality Education in Argentina, the low investment of the State in the production of strategic information, and in prevention and communication campaigns about HIV. We also discuss stigma, and how discrimination continues to be an obstacle in universal access to health, in job searches and in trying to achieve a better quality of life for young people and women living with HIV.

ICW and RAJAP carried out a survey and conducted interviews to complete a questionnaire.

Argentina is committed to human rights and to implementing actions aimed at achieving all the commitments that are assumed to achieve universal coverage of the rights of people with HIV, which is demonstrated through laws and policies. However, it is necessary to carry out a correct analysis of the situation to evaluate the spaces in which these efforts have not yet materialized, such as: Argentina has passed the new HIV Law, but still has a criminalisation transmission Law from 1936; the country will rule this new Law but has a Nursery Law that prohibits nurses living with HIV to work. Thus, it is necessary to reinforce the political commitment of the actors involved in the process of enhancing the quality of lives of people living with HIV.
