Stigma: More contagious than any biological virus.
1. EVERYONE. A working place where stigma and discrimination exist is not a healthy workplace.
2. PEOPLE LIVING WITH HIV. By being rejected by stigma carriers, HIV positive individuals are forced to hide their status, miss out on life-saving treatment, counseling and other forms of support.
3. HIV NEGATIVE PEOPLE. If stigma persists, people are scared even to obtain information for themselves and for their family members. Without accurate information about HIV prevention, treatment and care, everyone is at a higher risk of becoming infected with HIV.
