Measuring American attitudes toward HIV and the impact stigma has on people living with HIV
The HIV epidemic won’t end until we tackle the effects of stigma. We partnered with Gilead Sciences and Southern AIDS Coalition to better understand how much stigma still exists and its impact on those living with HIV. Despite making significant progress towards ending the epidemic, a majority of the public feels uncomfortable, uninformed, and concerned about HIV and people living with it. The State of HIV Stigma survey confirms that stigma and misinformation around HIV is widespread, and there is much work to be done to educate the public before we can end the epidemic once and for all.
