One of the key barriers to HIV awareness continues to be stigma. People living with HIV who experience stigma — either related to HIV or other marginalized characteristics — also experience higher levels of anxiety, lower levels of social support, lower quality of life, higher levels of depression, less adherence to ART, and less use of health and social services. Reducing HIV-related stigma remains a key step in improving access to testing, treatment and prevention strategies.
