The aim of the work was to ascertain the relationship between level of information, degree of concern and discriminative behaviour, when an HIV-seropositive child attends the same class as a close relative (offspring or sibling). The results suggest that people aged 40 to 50 are worse informed, experience more fear and show greater tolerance regarding the adoption of discriminatory measures, than students aged 20 to 30. In behaviour that promotes, inhibits or tolerates marginalizing measures, it seems that fear plays a stronger role than information.
