In the fight against HIV and AIDS, stigma and discrimination are key barriers to HIV prevention, care, and treatment in health facilities. Those most likely to be susceptible to HIV-related stigma are also often most at risk for HIV-infection. To address the barriers created by HIV-related stigma and discrimination, HP+ is conducting research to give health facilities the tools to fight stigma and discrimination and accelerate progress toward epidemic control. This brief outlines HP+’s stigma and discrimination work and explains how we’re implementing our total facility approach in Tanzania, Ghana, and Jamaica.
