“I am HIV+ and visible” Campaign Presentation

The Centro Anti-Discriminação (CAD), a joint project of two associations working with HIV/AIDS, was created 12 years ago to protect the rights of people living with HIV.


Framed by the work of two associations, CAD launches a campaign promoting the right for freedom and diversity exempt from discrimination.


For the first time in Portugal, 10 individuals come out as living with HIV, that it is part of their lives, and that HIV is not what defines them.
