HIV related stigma and discrimination in Zimbabwe still remains a challenge. The burden that stigma and discrimination places on communities particularly those with a significantly higher prevalence of HIV is a heavy one. HIV stigma and discrimination together have long been recognized as one of the main obstacles to the prevention, care and treatment of HIV. In the context of HIV, specific population groups including commercial sex workers (CSW), men who have sex with men (MSM), and transgender people have continued to face harsh legal and policy situations that predispose them to increased vulnerability to adverse effects of HIV/AIDS. The net effect of HIV related stigma and discrimination has been to prevent people who may or may not be aware of their HIV status from accessing much needed health services. At a personal level stigma can make individuals reluctant to access HIV testing, treatment, care, support services and other related health services. HIV infected key populations face double stigma – their status, and sexual and gender preference or orientation. Stigma towards key populations is reinforced by criminal laws and other structural barriers, which in turn fuel violence, exploitation and a climate of fear that hinders efforts to provide quality healthcare and other support services.
In this regard, the Key Populations Stigma Index aims to collect information regarding the experiences of key population groups related to stigma and discrimination, knowledge of their human rights and violations.
