Today, people can live and work with HIV just like anyone else – yet they experience disadvantages in their everyday lives. By signing the #positivarbeiten (#workingpositively) declaration, Volkswagen Group has committed itself to protecting HIV-positive employees from discrimination and to promoting an open and respectful coexistence.

Working with HIV: Volkswagen is flying the flag against discrimination
Elke Heitmüller: “HIV status is not relevant to professional activities at Volkswagen. Free from discrimination, every employee can contribute their full potential.”
Thore Masekowitz: “There is a lot of ignorance about HIV and the AIDS disease. That’s why it is important to convey that HIV-positive individuals can carry out any activity.“
