Stigma by the Numbers

A new project to count and classify individual stories of HIV stigma is beginning to paint a portrait of discrimination around the world. Preliminary research in Kenya, India, Lesotho and Trinidad and Tobago found that 17 percent of respondents said they’d received poor medical treatment based on their status; 35 percent felt sexually rejected because of it; 16 percent said they’d felt excluded from social gatherings; and 30 percent said they felt their families had suffered from discrimination. The project is sponsored by UNAIDS, the International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF), World YWCA and the International Community of Women Living with HIV/AIDS (ICW).
