"For many people, an HIV-positive diagnosis is the most difficult news they can receive - it implies not only having a life-threatening condition but also one that carries with it immense stigma and taboo. This paper is an opportunity for APN+ members to voice our concerns about the violations of positive people’s rights after they are infected with HIV. It looks at how AIDS-related discrimination impacts on prevention messages and examines a more promising way forward for government and non-government organisations to counter discrimination and human rights violations; one that is driven from the community and informed by people’s experiences."
