In all of the definitions of stigma that I've seen, nowhere have I seen fear mentioned. But surely fear is implicit within it... I don't see stigma towards HIV or AIDS, but just pure fear. To me, stigma is a mix of judgnmentalism and fear. But there is also just fear alone - like in the healthcare setting where we are told that someone is HIV+ and that we should take more precautions. As a healthcare worker I notice that the same fear is pervasive when we are told that a patient is HCV+ or HBV+.
