In an era of modern antiretroviral therapy, the life expectancy of people living with HIV has increased and many can expect to live a normal lifespan. However, people living with HIV experience a reduced quality of life and face stigma, discrimination and isolation. Europe, therefore, faces a significant societal challenge: it is not enough that people living with HIV are living long lives; they should also live well.
1 What concrete action is the EU taking to tackle the stigma and social isolation faced by people living with HIV?
2 What concrete action is the EU taking to end or prevent discriminatory practices or legislation, such as denial of medical services, discriminatory occupational laws, discriminatory travel or visa laws, etc., affecting people living with HIV?
3 Can the Commission outline how much funding has been allocated to support people living with HIV in the upcoming year?
