Abstract

"Evidence from an ICRW-led multi-country study conducted from 2001-2004 in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Vietnam and Zambia shows that HIV/AIDSrelated stigma is far less varied and context-specific than assumed. In fact, the key causes of stigma, its impact and its consequences have many more similarities than differences across contexts. Using findings from the four country studies, ICRW and its partners developed an HIV stigma-reduction toolkit for people working in communities to combat stigma."
