HIV stigma is huge. HIV stigma looks like death, looks like dying. It's a huge barrier to individuals receiving treatment and care. Personally, I've had friends who neglect treatment and care. And they actually die as a result of them not wanting to address their HIV status, and receive treatment and care for HIV.
