How does HIV-related stigma impact people living with and vulnerable to acquiring HIV?

People living with HIV often experience the consequences of stigma. Stigma arises from negative attitudes and beliefs, and it is rooted in fear, misconceptions, and moral judgments. It can lead to discrimination and exclusion. Stigma impacts people’s mental and emotional wellbeing and prevents them from accessing services or seeking opportunities. It also acts as a barrier to testing for people vulnerable to acquiring HIV.

Let’s change negative attitudes and beliefs.

Let’s challenge fear and judgment.

Let’s get to zero HIV-related stigma.
