This policy brief explores the impact ART availability has had on stigma, and outlines recommendations for ensuring that the roll-out of ART does lead to reduction in stigma. It draws on findings from qualitative research carried out against the backdrop of a longitudinal cohort study in a semi-rural area of North-Tanzania. Subsequent studies from two other areas of Tanzania, and Zimbabwe, have reported similar results.
