KIT Dossier Health-related stigma

Last update: Monday 27 May 2013

'The stigma is something that kills human beings - sometimes far more than the disease.' (Nelson Mandela)

The main aim of this dossier is to provide information on health-related stigma and its harmful consequences, including discrimination and social exclusion and to provide links to other resources on this topic.
The dossier is a spin-off of the activities of the International Consortium for Research and Action Against health-related Stigma (ICRAAS).
We hope that this Stigma Dossier will contribute to the advance of the fight against stigma by providing knowledge, access to instruments, and, most importantly, to people and organizations with experience in the various aspects of stigma and stigma reduction.If you would like to make any comments on this dossier or suggest additional resources, please contact the editor Ilse Egers
