Abstract

In this episode of the podcast "Everybody Hates Me: Let's Talk About Stigma," hosted by Carmen Logie, Council researcher Julie Pulerwitz describes how HIV information, and even medication, are not sufficient to eradicate stigma. She explains how stigma is intertwined with other social inequalities—related to gender, age, sexual orientation and gender identity, poverty, among others—and these need to be addressed alongside stigma. Engaging all persons as agents of change, documenting both inequalities and resilience, and community engagement, will contribute to better health and quality of life outcomes.
