The Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi on campaign poster against discrimination

The end of discrimination against HIV patients is the main objective of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV / AIDS (UNAIDS) in 2014.

Campaign Day Zero Discrimination, to be held in March 1, with the participation of Nobel Peace Prize, Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar.

UNAIDS aims to achieve a global transformation in treating the sick. Discrimination, according to the UN agency, can affect people in different ways.

Regarding the workplace, the UN Programme says that discrimination is a major obstacle to the expansion of access to HIV treatments.

Official data on the disease show that one in seven people living with the virus are denied access to health services and over 10% do not get jobs because they are HIV positive.

Speaking at the launch, the Nobel laureate said "believe in a world where everyone can blossom." She said "everyone can make a difference by enabling people to lead an independent life worthy of who they are."

"It will be impossible to zero the rate of new infections and AIDS-related deaths without an end to discrimination."

The head of UNAIDS, Michel Sidibe, said it would be impossible to zero the rate of new infections and AIDS-related deaths without an end to discrimination.

According to UNAIDS, the number of people with HIV in 2012 reached 35.3 million. Of the total, 2.3 million were new infections and 1.6 million people died from complications linked to the disease.
