Addressing HIV-Related Stigma Requires Efforts At Individual, Structural, Policy Levels

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: Zero Discrimination Day: Breaking down HIV stigma with individual, structural, and health facility policy interventions
In a guest post, Health Policy Project’s Molly Fitzgerald discusses the importance of addressing and ending HIV-related stigma in health facilities, writing, “[I]nterventions in health service provision aimed at mitigating stigma and discrimination must focus on the individual, environmental, and policy levels. By working at all three of these levels we can achieve long-lasting benefits for health workers, vulnerable populations in need of HIV education and testing, and HIV-positive patients” (3/1).
