Understanding HIV-Related Stigma and Resulting Discrimination in Sub-Saharan Africa

This research update is based on preliminary analysis of data collected from the African sites since the data collection began in August 2001.

Although analysis of the data is ongoing and even more data is yet to be gathered, several clear themes are already emerging.
