Stigma: More contagious than any biological virus.
ST2011 is a killer negative perception that infects those with low knowledge, making them so scared they discriminate against people who are different.
Stigma is now targetting people living with HIV. Stigmatizaiton of HIV positive individuals scares everybody and prevents us from seeking information, treatment, counseling, and from leading healthy and productive lives.
HIV-related stigma, like racism, homophobia, discrimination against women or any type of discriminatory attitude, has no place in the UN workplace.
