Over half of people living with HIV in NZ reported experiencing discrimination or stigma while receiving healthcare services.
HIV is now considered a manageable illness, so people with HIV need to access a variety of health services within their community. This means accessing quality services that are free from stigma and/or discrimination, regardless of what care is needed or where in New Zealand it is accessed.
How people get HIV doesn’t matter. How you treat them does.
