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 16-20, 2020, Virtual Event
The 11th annual Howard University International Conference on Stigma was held as a virtual event for the first time ever. Using the Whova app, our one-day event was successfully expanded to a five-day event. The event included research plenary sessions, panels, and workshops, a town hall, entertainment, artwork, and a lively international session with nine nations represented. The conference had 1571 registrants, with at least 1100 people attending at least one session. Participants logged in from at least 14 countries and territories.
