It is unacceptable that, over 35 years into the epidemic, stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV is still widespread among healthcare workers of all disciplines. Stigma and discrimination in health care settings seriously constrain our ability to end the HIV epidemic. Additionally and, contrary to medical ethics, people living with HIV often endure rejection and denial of health care for general conditions that are related or unrelated to their HIV infection. Such negative experiences deter those in need from seeking care and eventually their health deteriorates.Stigma and discrimination in healthcare settings prevail for a number of reasons. Misconceptions about modes of transmission of HIV still persist among health care workers. At the same time, there is limited effort and lack of clear strategies to address the protection of health workers with respect to occupational exposure to HIV.
