The BC People Living with HIV Stigma Index (the Stigma Index) is a dynamic research project in British Columbia, born out of a community-identified need to turn the tide against persistent HIV stigma and discrimination. Linked to the international HIV Stigma Index initiative and REACH’s national stigma work, it is the first ever community-based research (CBR) study in British Columbia to document experiences of stigma and discrimination from the perspective of people living with HIV.

The BC People Living with HIV Stigma Index, community-based research team at the Pacific AIDS Network, has started recruiting people living with HIV/AIDS from across the province to participate in interviews for this study. The interview involves a range of questions regarding experiences of stigma and discrimination in relation to HIV status.
