VIII. Conclusion

Romania’s advances in providing universal access to antiretroviral treatment to people living with HIV are being undermined by its failure to ensure the human rights of children and youth living with HIV. The government should take urgent action to combat discrimination against people living with HIV, particularly in the fields of access to education, medical care, social protection, and employment; ensure confidentiality of HIV-related information on individuals; and put in place legislation, programs, and policies to ensure that the rights of youth living with HIV are protected as they transition to adulthood.
