Fighting Stigma, Discrimination Against People Living With HIV/AIDS
April 22, 2011
In a post on USAID's "Impact Blog," Robert Clay, director of USAID's Office of HIV/AIDS, describes the agency's efforts to fight stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS. "With support from USAID, U.S. government country programs have been addressing stigma since the beginning of the epidemic and with increased intensity with the advent of PEPFAR in 2003," Clay writes. Additionally, USAID engaged with "partners to develop indicators to measure various aspects of stigma and discrimination" and is continuing to work globally to strengthen policy and advocacy support for the reduction of stigma and discrimination" through its Health Policy Project (4/19).
