1 Community against HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination
The WA AIDS Council has launched a new campaign to address the issue of HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination.
The 1 Community campaign encourages individuals to take an active stand against stigma and discrimination by supporting the message and making a public statement at www.1community.org.au
Trish Langdon, Executive Director said that many people living with HIV still continue to report unacceptable instances of HIV/AIDS stigma and discrimination in their daily lives.
“Despite having some legal protection many people living with HIV do not feel safe to disclose their status to those around them. This burden of secrecy often takes a huge toll on a person’s health, wellbeing and freedom to engage in community life.”
