Campaigns in Brazil

Throughout more than 20 years of epidemic, Brazil was one of the first countries in the world to stop associating AIDS to death in its campaigns. In contrast to this trend, the AIDS communication in the country started to privilege respect to human rights, information, self-esteem appreciation and encouragement to the use of condoms.
