The doctoral thesis entitled "Knowledge, attitudes and performances of students educational qualifications on HIV / AIDS", to analyze two key issues. The first is to identify the knowledge that students have about HIV/AIDS and affecting the social representation about the illness and their attitudes to such a question. The University of Huelva is part of the Spanish Network of Healthy Universities. Therefore, the second question seeks to make proposals and plan educational activities that will enable the university and especially the education of future professionals. Throughout the document, we emphasize the need to train students of educational qualifications in preventing new infections and the stigma associated with HIV, relying on various reports, research and publications reveal that there are still many difficulties to solve the situation. The Multisectoral Plan against HIV and AIDS in Spain (2008-2012) explains that our country, for many years, has had the highest infection rates in Europe and although they have taken effective about answers and results are increasingly favorable, they should continue developing educational interventions to reach the goal of UNAIDS "Zero new infections." The information extracted from this research have helped clarify what are the training deficiencies in that subject and as a result, have developed a series of proposals that we present in this study. Students of different educational qualifications should develop in the near future, projects that improve the quality of life of its students, developing education programs for school health and healthy sexual relationships.
