Experienced HIV-related stigma in health care and community settings: mediated associations with psychosocial and health outcomes.
This study examined the effects of HIV-related stigma in 203 patients at a Southeastern US urban HIV clinic. Psychosocial and health outcomes related to stigma in community and health care settings was investigated. The study showed that stigma was associated with subclinical outcomes such as viral nonsuppression, poor mental health and interpersonal outcomes. Interventions to address stigma in health care settings were recommended to help these patients.
