Stigma has been a major obstacle in combating HIV since the beginning of the epidemic. The communities in the United States disproportionately impacted by HIV are those historically impacted by other types of stigma based on factors such as race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, and socio-economic status.
A comprehensive response to stigma is needed in order to impact current health disparities and improve engagement at all levels of HIV treatment and care.
This course examines the sources and repercussions of stigma. It focuses on changes providers can make to respond to the impact that stigma has on risk, prevalence, and access to services.
This training is appropriate for any providers working in HIV prevention or treatment.
