"The right to health is a fundamental human right. Bucharest, as a capital, must be an example in supporting the human rights of the most vulnerable populations, and we, NGOs, must work together with the City for reaching this objective."
"Bucharest joined the other capitals in the fight towards a world without AIDS. The people fighting the epidemics are supported by the courage of the others: from individuals to communities, from families to public institutions, everyone is involved in reaching this objective. The General Council of Bucharest is part of this fight. For us, solidarity and involvement means supporting those fighting this battle. As such, we approved the agreement between the City of Bucharest and ARAS – the Romanian Association against AIDS, which means HIV prevention services, but also social and professional reintegration for the vulnerable persons in the capital. We are aware that the road is still long, that we live in a world where marginalization and stigma are still present, but we work towards changing this environment and supporting the improvement of life conditions of vulnerable persons, regardless of sex, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, social status, etc."
