Stigma Working Group

The Stigma Working Group is a group of CAB members interested in addressing HIV/AIDS stigmas and related stigmas that people affected by HIV/AIDS experience.

Current Stigma Working Group activities include:

  • Performing a systematic literature review and writing a journal article describing the findings.
  • Performing formative qualitative research including focus groups and interviews.
  • Engaging elected officials.
  • Engaging social, community, and health organizations with the goal of designing anti-stigma activities.

The working group meets on the first Tuesday of each month. For more information, email
