Reducing HIV stigma and discrimination: a critical part of national AIDS programmes - a resource for national stakeholders in the HIV response

Despite the pervasiveness of HIV-related stigma and discrimination in national HIV epidemics and their harmful impact in terms of public health and human rights, they remain seriously neglected issues in most national responses to HIV.
