HIV-related Stigma Across Contexts (2005)
"HIV and AIDS-related stigma has long been recognized as one of the main obstacles to the prevention, care and treatment of HIV and AIDS. Yet, little has been done on a large scale to combat stigma because it often is deemed too difficult to define and measure, and too context-specific for large-scale intervention efforts. However, Common at Its Core: HIV-related Stigma Across Contexts, suggests that there are many more similarities than differences in the key causes of stigma, its impact, and its consequences. "

"The demand for stigma indicators has continued to increase, particularly from USAID global missions and their partner agencies. In response to this need, USAID funded this first step of field-testing and validation of an initial set of stigma indicators at one site in Tanzania, based on selected stigma indicators from the Blue Book (USAID Expanded Response Guide to Core Indicators for Monitoring and Reporting on HIV/AIDS Programs), and the 2004 S&DIWG workshop. The results of this effort are found in this working report."
