In the area of citizenship rights studies people living with HIV/AIDS constitute a range of citizens who are deprived of the status of which every citizens deserves because of undue social stigma as infected or immoral people. In the view of traditional believe and negative perceptions about people living with HIV/AIDS penetrated to other citizens minds and putting together with the factors led to their marginalization and passive role in society the origin of declining citizenship rights can pave the way to take a comprehensive outlook to the necessity of providing legislative measurements to protect this range of citizens. With pondering the new approaches in the area of citizenship rights the author tries to review preventive and protective measures in the benefit of people living with HIV/AIDS with making clear the manifestations of citizenship rights based on humanitarian rights doctrines including right to job opportunities right to accessing treatment and health services, right to movement and right to privacy. In the light of international guidelines existing capacities of national statutes, this article tries to discuss the challenges which people living with HIV/AIDS face, when accessing and using citizenship rights whose reflection can be observed in waning their status in the society. doubtless, lack of sensitizing the citizenship rights doctrines with respect to the status of people living with HIV/AIDS, will designate them a decisive fate facing discriminatory behaviors when using the instances of citizenship rights.
