United States PLHIV Stigma Index launches for World AIDS Day 2013

16 Dec 2013

Advocates expose U.S. failures to address HIV stigma and discrimination and propose an anti-stigma empowerment tool based on community research.

November 27, 2013 New York, NY - The United States People Living with HIV Stigma Index may well be the most ambitious community-based research project ever undertaken to measure HIV Stigma and discrimination nationally, and it also has the benefit of empowering communities of people living with HIV, according to a report published by the project's National Steering Committee.
