HIV-related stigma and discrimination are widely recognized as key barriers to the use of HIV care, support, and treatment programs, thereby fueling the spread of HIV. The research has demonstrated that the experience and fear of stigma and discrimination can deter people from: seeking HIV testing; disclosing their HIV status; practicing prevention; accessing care; and adhering to treatment. Despite this, stigma and discrimination-reduction is not yet included as a fundamental part of national HIV responses. The scale-up of interventions to reduce stigma and discrimination is urgently needed to: improve access and retention in prevention, care and treatment programs; improve the lives of people living with and affected by HIV; uphold human rights; and maximize investments in prevention, care and treatment programs.
