HIV/AIDS-related stigma has long been recognized as a crucial barrier to the prevention, care and treatment of HIV and AIDS. Yet not enough is being done to combat it. One reason has been a lack of information: How do we define stigma? Can stigma be measured? Another reason has been the assumption by development practitioners that stigma is too tied to culture, too context-specific and too linked to taboo subjects like sex to be effectively addressed. Action also has been impeded by a lack of tools and tested interventions.
