The National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) and the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD) launched a national survey to examine stigma and to capture the perspectives of individuals embedded in public health systems to better understand how institutional and community-level stigma impacts the level of care available to black and Latino gay men and other men who have sex with men. The Survey was released on December 2011 in English and Spanish to health departments and community service providers. The study findings suggest a high prevalence of stigma across the United States and its impact on public health practice and community support networks.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants wil understand the impact of stigma on black and Latino gay men and other men who have sex with men in the United States.
  • Participants will learn the Survey results and their impact on the provision of care, treatment, and prevention in the United States.
  • Participant will learn about the technical assistance efforts and additional stigma-specific tools in development to assist health departments and community partners to better address institutional and community-level stigma in their jurisdictions.
