Stigma and discrimination are fueling the HIV epidemic in the Caribbean. In Jamaica, those living with HIV often face social isolation and harassment.
Stigma also stops at-risk people from seeking information on prevention and testing, altering their sexual behavior, and accessing counseling, support groups and treatment.
In this video, Kwame Dawes talks about HIV-related stigma with people living with the disease and those at risk of contracting HIV.
An extended essay by Kwame Dawes on HIV/AIDS in Jamaica is featured in the Spring 2008 issue of the Virginia Quarterly Review.
