The stigma associated with health conditions such as HIV infection is a major public health problem that impedes treatment and prevention efforts. The International Conference on Stigma will bring together researchers, community, academia, policy makers, faith leaders and youth to discuss the impact of health-related stigma and ongoing research on interventions to eliminate stigma. The conference will include plenary sessions and advocacy leadership training sessions; scientific poster presentations; networking opportunities; and art, with an emphasis on intersectionality of stigma and support for next generation of young researchers and advocates combating stigma.
The 11th Annual International Conference on Stigma will be held from Monday November 16 to Friday November 20, 2020 as a Virtual Howard University Event. Stay tuned for more information!
