According to Girardi, Chile is not enough to prevent AIDS


Senator Guido Girardi (PPD) criticized the conservative sector of the country and increased the number of HIV infected people.

Girardi said "Chile is not doing enough. This can not be avoided, but in Chile there is no real policy that allows true conscience. We do not have public policies for educational campaigns."

"There are condoms in the streets of every country in America and the problem of the media and Internet is discussed," added the President of the Senate Health Committee to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Medical Association.

According to the Public Health Institute (ISP), Chile increased by 96% in 2010 and 2017 in new HIV infection cases. In addition, between January and September this year, 5,206 new cases were identified, 21% compared to the same period of 2017, at 4,304.

As a result of these data, at the end of 2018, there should be between 6,500 and 7,000 infections to be more than 100% in the last eight years.

In this sense, Girardi lamented in Chile "to deal with the consequences and give us many resources with trtypies. It must be done, and people with AIDS are guaranteed, but we must try to avoid contraction."

"It is not a problem of this government for many decades to conceal HIV and to be responsible for such conservative sectors."

The Senator said that "when we proposed the use of the condom in the 90s, the Catholic Church did not use it, it was dangerous. I think the country needs to give an explanation."

He also stated that "here too, there are trusted liabilities and the conservative sector must make decisions that have been detained and preventive campaigns, issues related to sex, openness and openness."

On the other hand, he underlined the role of the 70th Anniversary Medical Association and, given the vision planned by the 60s, the generation of the Medical School is challenging to promote preventive and preventive health policy, to face this new stage of innovation. "
