In The Life Addresses "The Cost of Stigma" On World AIDS Day
December 1, 2010
An estimated 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV. On December 1, 2010 we honor World AIDS Day. This month, IN THE LIFE premieres The Cost of Stigma where we look at the power of stigma within our justice system and how the myths and fear that spread with the AIDS epidemic gave rise to laws criminalizing HIV transmission. We also meet researchers who consider stigma as a possible key link between bisexuality and poor health. The segments are:
