"Limited research has been done" on reasons contributing to HIV testing in South Korea's sexual minority populations, where prejudice against homosexuality and HIV/AIDS is rampant. " In particular, people with low IHP had a higher risk of HIV testing than those with higher IHP. Given these findings, more work is needed in Korea to raise GB men's HIV testing, including lowering the IHP of GB men and lowering the stigma against HIV testing among GB men. ".

"The reduction of stigma and discrimination in a population is one of the key indicators of HIV prevention and control's success. " This report was designed to investigate the prevalence of HIV-related stigma and its determinants among sexually active Ethiopians. Methods From the 2016 Ethiopian Demographic and Health Survey, in which two-stage cross-sectional stratified cluster sampling was used, were obtained.

Background: One of the most common theories in studies of human immunodeficiency virus disease (ISV) infection from the 1980s to the 2000s is stigma. The results: The report shows that body normalization and stigma continue to be a significant barrier to accessing HIV services in the United States. Secrecy is embedded in the belief that there is a culture of secrecy. Conclusion: The ambivalence of the images of HIV positive status and AIDS disease contributes to the exclusion of people living with HIV/AIDS. In other words, access to HIV/AIDS treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS is also a challenge for families living with HIV/AIDS.
