The PLHIV Stigma Index in The Gambia was conducted in 2012

A total of 317 people living with HIV participated in the  survey. The majority were women (76% N=242), urban residents (64% N= 202), married (67% N=212), and employed (58% N= 184). The median age was between 30 and 39 years old and the median number of years living with HIV was between 1 and 4 years. . Men and women differed significantly on key attributes, including age, marital status, sexual activity, and employment (p<0.05); women were generally more likely to be younger, divorced or widowed, sexually abstinent, and unemployed or employed in petty business.
