This panel discussion brings together academics, and individuals with personal and work-related experience to discuss the role stigma plays in the HIV epidemic. Since it was first known as GRIDS (Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome), HIV has been stigmatized and stigmatizing. From accessing treatment to sexual violence, stigma and other social determinants are as much drivers of infection as the virus itself.

Stop AIDS Week 2010 is being organised by UCLU Medsin Society in association with other UCLU societies. We thank the UCL Grand Challenges, the UCL Friends Trust and UCL Union for helping to fund the week. We also thank the UCL Institue of Global Health for their help and expertise.
