  • At long last, academics, researchers, activists, service providers, and people living with HIV are beginning to understand and articulate the consequences of addressing (or not addressing) and measuring HIV-related stigma and discrimination. This paper reviews the present understanding of HIV-related stigma and discrimination as they relate to vulnerability, and suggests approaches for stigma reduction. It explores and examines what constitutes HIV-related stigma and discrimination, what effects they have on behavior and HIV responses, and what we can do to reduce them.
