Abstract :

Abstract —The present study aims to identify Public Health Policies, regarding the treatment and prevention of the HIV virus in the state of Rio de Janeiro through the government website “Rio com Saúde”. In the literature review, it is highlighted that there is no theoretical construction based on the subject, with a predominance of studies related to the HIV virus. The method used was documentary research and data collection carried out through available literature, covering scientific articles published from 1980 to 2019 and data from the Ministry of Health. The most relevant results of the research indicate that Rio de Janeiro has public policies aimed at the treatment and prevention of the HIV virus, where services are offered for exams, tests for prevention, distribution of medicines and specific legislation to raise awareness of the disease. The conclusion of the research points to the need to implement preventive public policies in order to minimize the impacts and the proliferation of the virus in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Keywords—Health Management; Public Policies; Prevention; HIV / AIDS.
