Discrimination in healthcare sector

The study “positive voices” conducted by the German AIDS-Relief in 2011 showed that around 20% out of 1,148 surveyed  was denied a health care service due to their HIV-infection in the last 12 months.

Discrimination against chronically ill people also occurs in the healthcare sector. People that are infected by HIV or are obese are particularly affected.
