Stigma, when associated with HIV, another medical condition, mental illness or disability, prevents a person from seeking evaluation and treatment, disclosing the diagnosis to those most likely to provide support, and following treatment guidelines. Health related stigma destroys human dignity.

November 15-19, 2021, Virtual Event
The 12th annual Howard University International Conference on Stigma was held as a virtual 5-day event again this year. The event included research plenary sessions, panels, and workshops, a town hall, entertainment, artwork, and a lively international session. The conference had more than 700 registrants. Participants logged in from at least 32 countries and territories!
From our 2021 attendees:
” This conference was amazing as always! I loved the addition of the Hip-Hop session and hope to have more sessions on the influence of pop culture/media related topics on stigma. Would also love more sessions on mental health.”
