New HIV Stigma Website courtesy of the Stigma Action Network (SAN)

We're pleased to announce the launch of the Stigma Action Network (SAN) website! It's a "one-stop shop" for affected populations, program designers and implementers, researchers, advocates, trainers and donors to learn about the latest tools, technical resources, research findings, best practices and new initiatives in reducing HIV-related stigma and discrimination. This online resource will facilitate networking, dialogue, partnerships and knowledge sharing among these diverse stakeholders around the world.
