HIV-Related Discrimination Remains High In African Countries, Says UNAIDS

UNAIDS: HIV-related discrimination far too high
“…HIV-related discrimination stops people accessing the HIV services they need to stay healthy and can affect incomes and livelihoods and a whole range of other aspects of people’s lives. Discriminatory attitudes towards people living with HIV remain extremely high in far too many countries. Across 26 countries with recent population-based survey data, the percentage of people aged 15-49 years with discriminatory attitudes towards people living with HIV ranged from 16.9% in South Africa to 80% in Guinea” (11/12).
