Our research in this area focuses on experiences and the expression of stigma and discrimination towards people affected by blood borne viruses (BBVs) and sexually transmissible infections (STIs). It also includes investigations into interventions to address stigma and discrimination, and improve health outcomes for affected populations.

Spotlight on Stigma seminar recordings

This occasional seminar series presented by the Centre for Social Research in Health explores the cutting-edge of stigma science, policy and practice. We draw on insights from national and international experts with the aim of building awareness and skills in the use of stigma concepts and evidence. Through this series, we hope to contribute to developing a shared literacy around key concepts in stigma, centrally involve people with lived experience in examining and unpacking research, and advance our efforts to reduce the effects of stigma in Australia.
