This poster was presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2014. It summarizes a study of HIV-related stigma and discrimination, which pose barriers to accessing HIV testing and treatment services and, in healthcare settings, can be especially damaging for people living with HIV (PLHIV). This cross-sectional study is part of a collaboratively funded global effort led by the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project to develop a brief stigma-measurement tool for health workers. This tool allows assessment and monitoring of stigma in healthcare settings.
