AIDS Stigma and Discrimination

HIV stigma refers to negative beliefs, feelings and attitudes towards people who are living with HIV, their families, people who work with them and members of groups that have been impacted by HIV, such as gay or bisexual men, homeless people, street teens, and mentally ill persons. HIV discrimination refers to unjust treatment of person which is based on their real or perceived HIV status. It can also affect family, friends, and those who take care for people with HIV positive. There are myths of casual transmission of HIV and pre-existing biases against certain groups, certain sexual behaviours, drug use, and fear of illness and death.
