Drivers and facilitators and manifestations of HIV-related stigma
Scotland HIV Stigma Consortium, 11 November 2016
Speakers: Catherine Dodds
HIV Scotland has assembled a consortium comprising community members, NHS, academics, third sector and the Scottish Government. Their aim is to draft an HIV anti-stigma strategy for Scotland, and they invited Catherine to speak about drivers, facilitators, and manifestations of stigma to inform their strategy development. This talk reviews our model of HIV related stigma and the way it directly supports much wider social inequalities (ie racism, homophobia, etc), as well as considering Sigma’s related evidence collected over the past 13 years on the subject and the implications for research and policy.
