Scaling Up the Response to HIV Stigma and Discrimination. International Center for Research on Women and the Department of Public Health and Policy of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (2011)

HIV stigma and discrimination adversely affect every aspect of life for people living with HIV and their families. In many settings, an HIV diagnosis still can be as devastating as the illness itself, leading to job loss, school expulsion, violence, social ostracism, loss of property, and denial of health services and emotional support. People living in fear are less likely to adopt preventive behavior, come in for testing, disclose their sero-status to others, access care and adhere to treatment.
