The background:The spread of the infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) globally and nationally among the population, mainly its young and adult segments, is a constant concern for various categories of specialists who analyse and seek solutions to reduce this phenomenon. HIV infection is not just a medical condition, but is a complex issue with social, psychological, educational, and economic implications for individuals and communities. Purpose: Identifying the level of professional inclusion of young people affected by HIV in the Jiu Valley. Method used: questionnaire-based survey. Results and conclusions: The existence of HIV diagnosis continues to be one of the main barriers in relation to the educational and professional path of young people in the studied community. The vast majority of the affected youth have experienced marginalization, discrimination and labelling. The educational and professional environment plays a particularly important role in the lives of young people affected by HIV, contributing to their involvement in an educational and professional process appropriate to their age, and to the growth of the degree of networking and socialization with others. The professional inclusion of young people affected by HIV is an essential step in the personal and professional development of youth.
