Campaign against stigma

In communities affected by HIV and AIDS people confront significant challenges to accessing treatment. These include widespread stigma and discrimination.

  • The effects of lack of communication and misinformation can lead to increased stigma and discrimination and human rights violation.

  • Stigma and discrimination can prevent people from finding out or disclosing their status and from taking their tablets.

    Researchers recommend supporting communities in mobilizing to reduce stigma and discrimination and create an environment where people can take their drugs without fear.
