In these acknowledgment years, the AIDS has obliged us to denaturalize social cultural questions historically built, and that are part of the signs, rules and codes that mark out the society structure and organization, imposing other views and new perspectives towards the questions complexity related to gender, the bodies and the culture. Taking this conjuncture into consideration, this research was carried out with four HIV+ women activists in the AIDS movement with the objective of apprehending their conceptions about AIDS, the vulnerability contexts that made their infection possible, their vulnerabilities towards the reinfection, and changes and permanency in the affective-conjugal and motherhood fields, from the disease and activism experience.

Keywords : AIDS; Gender; Activism.
