The epedemy of HIV/AIDS existed during the period 1986-1992 when many children were nosocomial infected transmission, but even in future, especially because of injectable drug usage. For example, New Psyhoafective Substances were the cause of a lot of HIV infections. Because of that, but more because of misinformation of general population about HIV transmission leads the stigmatization and discrimination of people living with HIV. Stigmatization and/or discrimination would considerably decrease if the society would be correctly informed, starting from primary socialization to know people living with HIV , so the degree of acceptance of an HIV positive person at the workplace, at the group of friends or even life partner will be higher. Serodiscordant couples are the couples where a parter is HIV positive, and the other is HIV negative. These kind of couples, alike as the common couples, bases on communication, acceptance and trust. Of course, there are also problems, especially when it comes to disclosure of HIV/AIDS diagnosis. The disclosure of HIV diagnosis is a very difficult process because there is a probability that the people living with HIV/AIDS would not know how to approach more fair and delicate the situation, especially when it comes to disclosure the diagnostic to the partner. Fortunately, even if the seronegative partners don’t undersand how is it to live with HIV, they, by being more informed about HIV then before forming a copule, didn’t recourse to marginalize nor to abandon their HIV positive significant other.
