Zero HIV Stigma Day

July 21

Zero HIV Stigma Day is July 21 and is a joint initiative of NAZExit Disclaimer and IAPAC,Exit Disclaimer in collaboration with the Global HIV Collaborative and Fast-Track Cities Institute. HIV stigma refers to irrational or negative attitudes, behaviors, and judgments towards people living with or at risk of HIV.

Zero Stigma Day represents a movement to unite people, communities, and countries to help raise awareness about HIV stigma and learn about ways to help stop it. This observance is also in honor of Prudence Mabele, the first Black South African woman to publicly share her HIV status.
