Addressing self-stigma among people affected by HIV

Self-stigma among people affected by HIV significantly contributes to the alarming high rates of new HIV infections and AIDS-related mortality. We must therefore urgently invest in developing evidence-based programmes that reach those most at risk of self-stigma. To do this, we need to know what works. Frontline AIDS has carried out a systematic review of available evidence on what works to reduce self-stigma. The findings are summarised in this briefing.
