According to the information of the local organizations: Sens Pozitiv and Aras, there are currently seven thousand people in Romania, not receiving adequate treatment over a month ago, and they even point out that the queues in the hospitals, are increasing every day, because of the need to get the treatments. As you may realize, we are facing an event that attempts on the public health and the human rights.

For the above reasons, the coordinating platforms of Spanish civil organizations, undersigning this document 1 , ask earnestly for to the Spanish government that, as UE on duty Presidency, considers and poses our worry to the rest of the UE country members, in order to ask from the Romanian government, a fast response in the interest of the people living with HIV, given that the situation does not improve, and the thousands of affected people need urgently the provision of ARV.


Likewise, we would like to ask for his intercession for the following:

  • We ask from the Romanian government that, it takes the necessary measures to immediately provide ARV treatment to all the affected people who need it.
  • We ask from the Romanian government that, in order to get this purpose, it dialogues with the pharmaceutical companies to get better prices in the ARV, having recourse to the principles of the Bremen initiative (13/03/2007), of which is signatory.
  • We demand that, the economic crises excuse, does not put under risk the life of the people.
