What Does HIV/AIDS Stigma Look Like in Your Life?

When I think of HIV stigma, it's really such a myriad, a bagful of differences, misunderstandings and miscommunications. I saw this many times in my previous job -- I worked as a liaison between technical and non-technical people -- and I think that's one of the many challenges we have. I hope we can make some better inroads, being a liaison between those who understand and don't understand what HIV is and what we can do about it.
