Stigma and HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS is a life-threatening illness that people are afraid of contracting. In all international reports over the years, noted that the problem with the dominant of a person living with HIV is the stigma Stigma has accompanied the HIV/AIDS epidemic since its early years. To talk about HIV or discuses in public is not at all easy. A young man in 2008 HIV positive said that "for me is more much easier to disclose that I’m gay, than HIV-positive”. Stigma, like the virus itself, does not discriminate. It affects individuals across the globe. People have been fired from their jobs, kicked out of their homes, rejected by family and friends and, in some instances, abounded because of HIV-related stigma.
