According to a survey revealed on Monday within the framework of the 68th Inter-American Press Association (IAPA) General Assembly, held in Sao Paolo, Brazil, 67% of the journalists in the region that participated in the opinion poll reckoned that press freedom, as a constitutional right, is at risk in the hemisphere.

The IAPA conducted a survey entitled "Press freedom in the Americas" among 101 journalist or editors in 12 countries of the continent. Based on the findings, 82% of the respondents believe that Venezuela is the country where press freedom is more at risk.

The study assessed several issues, such as the factors threatening freedom of speech in the Americas, aggressions against journalist and the media, impunity in cases involving free press violations, self-censorship, and the relation between journalists and their governments.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
