Stigma and discrimination (S&D) in health facilities undermines HIV prevention, care, and treatment and negatively impacts health. Reducing S&D requires understanding the prevalence of its drivers and manifestations to shape a tailored response. The St. Kitts and Nevis National AIDS Program (NAP), with support from the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) and the University of the West Indies (UWI), collected data as a first step in creating a comprehensive S&D-reduction program. This poster, presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2014, summarizes the results of the data collection.
