The Role of Stigma People thought to have HIV/AIDS may suffer enormously from stigma. Stigma communicates public disapproval,101 and in some places may be so strong that people with the syndrome prefer to die silently rather than bring shame upon their entire family.

Once a disease associated with gay men, HIV is taking on an increasingly feminine face. In 2006, one million more women than in 2004 had HIV/AIDS. In sub-Saharan Africa, there are fourteen women with HIV for every ten seropositive men (UNAIDS, 2006). , 2004; Dworkin and Ehrhardt, 2007; Elliott and Smith, 2004; Gupta, 2002; among others).
