Even though there have been amazing advances in the treatment of HIV, stigma still surrounds the disease.
Mis-information, fear, and lack of HIV knowledge keep many people living with HIV from accessing care or needed treatment due to fear of their status being known.
Stigma surrounds mental health, yet it is just as important to address as your physical health.
