As part of the initiative Building a Medical Home for Multiply Diagnosed HIV Homeless Populations, staff conducted a substudy on stigma. The goals of the study are to 1) understand and describe how stigma is manifested in individual’s experience 2) develop approaches and coping skills for clients who experience stigma and 3) create a medical home to reduce stigma and enhance access and quality of care. The team presented preliminary results at the Ryan White 2016 conference.
