AIDS stigma exists around the world in a variety of ways, including ostracism, rejection, discrimination and avoidance of HIV infected people; compulsory HIV testing without prior consent or protection of confidentiality; violence against HIV infected individuals or people who are perceived to be infected with HIV; and the quarantine of HIV infected individuals. Stigma-related violence or the fear of violence prevents many people from seeking HIV testing, returning for their results, or securing treatment, possibly turning what could be a manageable chronic illness into a death sentence and perpetuating the spread of HIV. This book presents an inside view of NGO-led HIV/AIDS interventions on the ground. The NGO sector is the most visible face of civil society activism and NGOs have to date offered the most creative and comprehensive responses to the complex challenges of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
