    Abstract

    HIV/AIDS remains one of the most important communicable diseases in Europe, with over 20,000 individuals becoming infected each year – mostly young people and people of working age. It is an infection associated with serious morbidity, high costs of treatment and care, significant mortality and shortened life expectancy. In this Commentary, published to mark World AIDS Day (December 1st), CEPS Research Fellow Svetla Tsolova argues that active involvement of business is critically important in any serious attempts to address the spread of HIV/AIDS. On a personal level, she calls for a commitment from all European citizens to try to overcome the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS, to be more open, acceptable and communicative on the issue and avoid unnecessary fears and misunderstandings.
