The World Bank in collaboration with DFID and the UK Consortium on AIDS and International Development launched an evaluation exercise in 2009 to assess the results achieved by community responses to HIV and AIDS. The primary objective of this effort is to build a more robust pool of evidence on the impact and added value of community-based activities and actions. This Brief, one of a series from different African countries, outlines the findings in Lesotho. The study focus was on stigma and discrimination and it aimed to determine the socioeconomic determinants of HIV-related stigmatizing attitudes in Lesotho, and whether there is an association between fear of discrimination and use of HIV testing services.
