Resolution 812 (1983)1 On the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)

The Assembly,

1. Noting with concern the spread in Europe of a new disease, namely AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome);

2. Observing that the origin of AIDS is still unknown, and that, while it affects homosexuals, it also strikes other categories of persons;

3. Recalling its Recommendation 924 (1981) and Resolution 756 (1981), on discrimination against homosexuals;

4. Reaffirming its unshakeable attachment to the principle that each individual is entitled to have his privacy respected and to self-determination in sexual matters;

5. Concerned at the inaccuracy in the information circulated on AIDS by some of the media, whose sole concern is sensational news;

6. Emphasising that campaigns of this kind establish a link between AIDS and homosexuality, so spreading anti-homosexual reactions,

7. Welcomes Recommendation No. R (83) 8 of the Committee of Ministers and the concern manifested in that recommendation that information on the matter shall be objective, but regrets that it was circulated with an appended document from the United States which did not reflect the situation in Europe;

8. Approves the prevention measures proposed by the Committee of Ministers, such as that concerning the importation of blood plasma;

9. Calls on the Health Ministries of the various countries to do their utmost to promote dissemination of complete information on AIDS, and to encourage relevant research;

10. Calls for questionnaires and literature on AIDS to be worded in such terms as to avoid infringing in any way, directly or indirectly, an individual's independence and privacy;

11. Urges the media to ensure that no information on AIDS is diverted from its course to become information directed against homosexuals;

12. Expresses the hope that the governments of the member states will back co-ordinated programmes of research into AIDS.

Résolution 812 (1983)1 relative au syndrome immuno–déficitaire acquis (SIDA)

L'Assemblée,

1. Constatant avec inquiétude la propagation en Europe d'une nouvelle maladie, le SIDA (syndrome immuno-déficitaire acquis);

2. Constatant, d'autre part, que l'origine du SIDA reste encore inconnue, et que, s'il frappe des homosexuels, il touche aussi d'autres catégories de la population;

3. Rappelant sa Recommandation 924 (1981) et sa Résolution 756 (1981), relatives à la discrimination à l'égard des homosexuels;

4. Réaffirmant son attachement indéfectible au principe d'inviolabilité de la vie privée de tout individu et au droit à l'autodétermination sexuelle;

5. S'inquiétant du manque de rigueur de l'information diffusée au sujet du SIDA par certains médias à la seule recherche de sensationnel;

6. Soulignant que de telles campagnes, par le lien qu'elles établissent entre le SIDA et l'homosexualité, tendent à provoquer une réaction de rejet à l'encontre des homosexuels,

7. Se félicite de la Recommandation n° R (83) 8 du Comité des Ministres et du souci d'information objective qui s'y manifeste, mais regrette que sa diffusion ait été accompagnée de celle d'un document en annexe d'origine américaine non conforme à la situation européenne;

8. Approuve les mesures de prévention proposées par le Comité des Ministres, notamment en matière d'importations de plasma sanguin;

9. Calls on the Health Ministries of the various countries to do their utmost to promote dissemination of complete information on AIDS, and to encourage relevant research;

10. Calls for questionnaires and literature on AIDS to be worded in such terms as to avoid infringing in any way, directly or indirectly, an individual's independence and privacy;

11. Urges the media to ensure that no information on AIDS is diverted from its course to become information directed against homosexuals;

12. Expresses the hope that the governments of the member states will back co-ordinated programmes of research into AIDS.
