49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The management of HIV/AIDS stigma among people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHAs) is based on the social construction of HIV/AIDS and sexuality, traditional masculine and feminine identities, discourses around sexuality and its relation to HIV/AIDS stigma. Since HIV/AIDS is sexually transmitted disease, its stigma is of two forth. A disease transmitted sexually as a result of violation of sexual norms and values and the AIDS disease itself. Different groups such as men versus women, adults versus children and prostitutes/barmaids versus married women experience stigma. However, the level of stigma varies from one group to another depending on the degree in which sexual norms and values have been violated. Social institutions such as family and region assign conformers and deviants of sexual norms, values and morality. They have power in determining the management of stigma among people living with HIV/AIDS. At individual level, management of HIV/AIDS related stigma is difficult but rather strives to cope with it. The management of stigma will be possible if HIV/AIDS will be dissociated from issues around sexuality

Up until now, many articles have been written to portray stigma and discrimination which occur with people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) in many parts of the world. But this is the first book which attempts to put together results from empirical research relating to stigma, discrimination and living with HIV/AIDS. The focus of this book is on issues relevant to stigma and discrimination which have occurred to individuals and groups in different parts of the globe, as well as how these individuals and groups attempt to deal with HIV/AIDS. The book comprises chapters written by researchers who carry out their projects in different parts of the world and each chapter contains empirical information based on real life situations. This can be used as an evidence for health care providers to implement socially and culturally appropriate services to assist individuals and groups who are living with HIV/AIDS in many societies. The book is of interest to health care providers who have their interests in working with individuals and groups who are living with HIV/AIDS from a cross-cultural perspective. It will be useful for students and lecturers in courses such as anthropology, sociology, social work, nursing, public health and medicine. In particular, it will assist health workers in community health centres and hospitals in understanding issues related to HIV/AIDS and hence provide culturally sensitive health care to people living with HIV/AIDS from different social and cultural backgrounds. The book is useful for anyone who is interested in HIV/AIDS-related stigma and discrimination in diverse social and cultural settings.

HIV/AIDS related stigma and discrimination are probably as old as the disease itself. Despite the fact that Sweden is one of the countries providing top quality medical care to people living with HIV/AIDS, the epidemic of HIV related stigma and discrimination looms large at different levels in the Swedish society. This paper sets out to discover how stigma and discrimination are obstacles to HIV prevention, care and treatment. The main findings of this study include among others: that HIV/AIDS related stigma and discrimination exists in Sweden and it is a big obstacle to HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment. Forms of stigma include self stigma, which is the most common form of stigma in Sweden plus stigma from society. Discrimination is seen in the healthcare system, the media, migrations board and the justice system. The Swedish Communicable Diseases Act also seems to be enhancing stigma and discrimination. The negative treatment in society and various institutions, plus the harassment of People Living with HIV/AIDS by the media prevents people from testing for HIV/AIDS and also from seeking care and treatment.

This book is an exploration of the nature of HIV/AIDS related stigma in rural Ghana. Despite the significant progress made in the reduction of new HIV infections, HIV/AIDS related stigma still remains one of the main challenges faced by rural communities globally. This book seeks to describe attitudes within the rural community of Wa about the disease, describe existing de-stigmatization approaches used by relevant bodies in the community, and also examines in a preliminary manner, the effectiveness of these approaches in reducing HIV/AIDS related stigma. Knowledge is not synonymous with behaviour change and is insufficient to effectively reduce stigma hence there is the need for more funding to embrace a broader and more effective stigma reducing strategies. HIV/AIDS related stigma is severe in rural Ghana due to rural social interaction and the implications of rural economics, strengthening the rights of the infected and affected would consequently reduce the effects of HIV/AIDS related stigma. HIV/AIDS related stigma continue to hamper efforts to prevent new infections, treatment, care, and support programmes.
