CRESPO DOMINGUEZ, Fernando; CASTELLON LOZANO, Roberto; CARDENAS ALMAGRO, Aimée Sofia  and  LICEA GONZALEZ, Amelia. Bioethics and social approach of the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.2, pp.387-406. ISSN 1727-8120.

Persons who are carrier of the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome or persons who are sick have experienced destructive consequences in the personal, familiar and social spheres since the appearance of the first cases. The objective of this work is to analyze the fulfilment of the bioethical principles, as well as the repercussion derived from the ethics dilemma of the professional behaviour with these patients, what demonstrate the necessity of overcoming taboos and the discrimination they have suffered from since the beginnings of the disease.

Keywords : Acquired Immunodeficiency Síndrome; HIV; Retroviridae; bioethical issues.
