Hepatitis and HIV/AIDS Stigma: Shaking Off Fears and Planning for Our Well-Being … by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

One of the most difficult things about hepatitis and HIV/AIDS is social stigma; concern about what others may think can be paralyzing in a way.

I feel there are lots of folks in the same boat on this, but everyone feels isolated from everyone else, either because they’re afraid they might get hepatitis or HIV, or because they or someone they love has one of these diseases.

It looks like the key is to realize these are community health issues, and not ‘point the finger’ issues, you know? The more we talk together about our concerns as a community, I feel, the better off we will be.

Fortunately there are some new publications available that point the way to getting around this difficulty about social stigma …
