Azul Positivo

Humanitarian Organization

Azul Positivo is a humanitarian organisation which has been providing humanitarian aid to vulnerable communities in Zulia, particularly people living with HIV/AIDS, for over fifteen years. The organisation has been exceptionally active in combating the impact of COVID-19 on local communities through workshops on sexual and reproductive health, educational sessions on disease prevention and assistance in food safety.


HRDs have been working under restrictive policies for many years: the Maduro administration has continued the work begun by Chávez in restricting civil space and delegitimising HRDs, repeatedly accusing them of undermining the Venezuelan democracy with the alleged collaboration of the United States. HRDs are discredited and criminalised by state-controlled media (television, radio, print media) on a weekly basis.
