FRSY02 Getting to Zero Excuses: Understanding and Addressing HIV-Related Stigma and Discrimination
  Symposia Session
Venue: Session Room 2
Time: 27.07.2012, 11:00 - 12:30
Co-Chairs: Suzette Moses-Burton, Saint Martin
Sarah Wescot-Williams, Saint Martin
 
 
HIV stigma and discrimination are consistently recognized as critical barriers to uptake of treatment, disclosure of status, timely entry into care and adherence. Yet investments in community level stigma and discrimination reduction efforts remain small in comparison to the stated need. This session will look at critical areas that may be hindering, or working to facilitate, a more concerted response to stigma and discrimination, and thereby influencing the successful roll out of treatment as prevention and the elimination of vertical transmission of HIV.
