Overcoming Stigma, Discrimination Key To Ending AIDS

Devex: Redoubling efforts to fight stigma and discrimination key to ending AIDS
Anne Stangl, senior behavioral scientist at the International Center for Research on Women

“…As the world’s attention turns to HIV and AIDS this week, we must redouble our efforts to ensure that sufficient attention is focused on how to reduce and overcome the stigma and discrimination that are impeding efforts to end AIDS. When we work together to end stigma and discrimination, we will be able to ensure that all people — regardless of their sexual orientation, race, age, gender, or class — have access to vital HIV prevention, care, and treatment services” (7/21).
