Abstract: HIV-related stigma and discrimination has been identified as a universal phenomenon which occurs in every country and region of the world. It was identified as the 'third epidemic' early in the history of HIV by late Jonathan Mann; the first being the hidden but accelerated spread of HIV, while the second was the visible rise of AIDS cases. Stigma continues to be potentially the most difficult aspect of the HIV epidemic to address. However, addressing it would likely be the key to overcoming and reducing the impact of HIV/AIDS in its various ramifications and the key to tackling the first two epidemics identified by late Jonathan Mann.
