HIV-related stigma and discrimination in health care settings are known to negatively affect the HIV response. Experiences of HIV-related stigma and discrimination have been widely reported in health care settings around the world and have constituted a deterrent to accessing HIV-related and other health services. Stigma and discrimination in health care settings take many forms including: the denial of health care and unjust barriers to service provision; inferior quality of care; a lack of respect; abuse and other forms of mistreatment; violation of physical autonomy; mandatory testing or treatment; and compulsory detention. Health workers living with HIV can also experience stigma and discrimination within their workplace.
