Thus, the general objective was to analyze the low adherence to treatment of users with HIV/AIDS in a university hospital in Belém. The specific objectives were: to briefly contextualize health policies, highlighting their (re)meaning and their conception as a social right in the scope of HIV/AIDS; investigate the insertion of social services in the health area and its relationship with HIV/AIDS and analyze the process of (non) adherence to HIV/AIDS treatment in the specialized care service at the João de Barros Barreto University Hospital. An exploratory study was carried out, based on quanti-qualitative research, establishing a dynamic relationship between the real world and the subject. The field research was carried out at the João de Barros Barretos University Hospital (UHJBB), a reference institution in the treatment of people with HIV/AIDS, also using documentary research in the hospital's database (medical records), interviews with users and a local Social Worker , from September 2019 to February 2021. It was observed that the factors that most impacted the continuity of treatment was the stigma that persists for more than 40 years of the epidemic generated by a number of technical and structural errors in Public Policies, corroborating for the massification of prejudice and discrimination.
