Stigma and discrimination in health care settings
This year’s campaign conveys the voice of health care workers to their peers and to decision-makers in health. It aims to ensure the rights of health care workers to protection from HIV without breaching the rights of people living with HIV.
On the occasion of the World AIDS Day campaign 2011, health care workers from the Region gathered and discussed forms of, and reasons for, stigma and discrimination in health care settings. They developed recommendations to reduce both stigma and discrimination in these settings.
