Description :

This report describes a research project conducted in India which emphasizes forms and determinants of HIV/AIDS-related discrimination, stigmatization, and denial. It offers an account of how DSD operates, and what causes it, in a range of contexts in two contrasting regions. The report provides a discussion of the gendered nature of HIV-related discrimination, and finds that there was clear evidence that the HIV/AIDS-related discrimination, stigmatization, and denial is in some respects a gendered phenomenon. It concludes with a number of recommendations that are intended to address the core problems and thereby improve the overall situation.
