Currently in our country there is a gap of 25 thousand people who do not know that they have HIV, which is why it is urgent for people to take the test so that they can be diagnosed.
This serious situation has alerts to the health authorities that have just started a campaign for people to become aware of the virus.
However, the new spot launched by the Ministry of Health generated many criticisms because it is considered to have a "police" tone.
In the video, which begins with an intimidating music, you see the faces of different people who could have HIV and the challenge is that you discover what the virus has, an issue that is impossible. That is why the message is that you do the test.
This was criticized by activists who considered that the campaign is a "persecution" for people who have HIV
See the campaign here:
he @ministeriosalud Presents HIV / AIDS prevention campaign in police and investigative format. Not on fast test but uses (abuses) with faces of people, some of them HIV, posing a terrifying challenge: "You have 10 seconds to discover it". Better times? pic.twitter.com/ONKpsNxcMW

Bad, definitely bad It's not a police novel, it's real life. The test must be presented as a friendly and possible alternative for the whole population, as a way that serves us all and call for the collective responsibility to prevent it.

But a person with HIV can not be treated as suspected criminals or criminals who are looking for the AIDS weapon to do Dany.
Your government got it wrong.
I say this from the Political Center

Frightening It seems like a police trailer and we're doing the test. Instead of approaching this much-needed possibility, end up turning the issue as something that has nothing to do with us, which would not happen to us. Pure negligence!

The tonic of the campaign is unfortunate. A terrifying format that more than encouraging the test to be called to identify comic offenders, people living with HIV who live with us. Color, music, everything points to terror and stigma.
