Abstract

Against the backdrop of the developing global epidemics of HIV and AIDS, demands have been made for a radical scaling up of the international response. Central among the steps that need to be urgently taken are efforts to combat stigma and discrimination. This article offers a conceptual overview of the relationship between the stigma associated with HIV and AIDS and discrimination and human rights, with the goal of demonstrating the interconnectedness of these concerns and describing elements of a future, and potentially more effective, programmatic response. /// Sur toile de fond d'évolution des épidémies mondiales du VIH et du sida, une révision à la hausse radicale de la réponse internationale est attendue. Au cœur des mesures urgentes, des efforts doivent être mis en œuvre pour lutter contre la stigmatisation et la discrimination. Cet article présente un aperçu conceptuel du lien qui rattache la stigmatisation associée au VIH et au sida et la discrimination aux droits civiques. Notre objectif est de démontrer l'interconnexion de ces aspects et de décrire les éléments d'un futur programme de réponse susceptible d'être plus efficace. /// Con la epidemia global del VIH y del SIDA como telón de fondo, se han hecho demandas por un incremento radical de la respuesta internacional en la lucha contra la epidemia. El esfuerzo para combatir el estigma y la discriminación asociados a la epidemia es una de las medidas urgentes que se deben tomar. Este artículo ofrece una revisión conceptual de la relación entre el estigma asociado con el VIH / SIDA, la discriminación y los derechos humanos, con el objetivo de demostrar la manera en la cual estas preocupaciones están interconectadas y de describir elementos para una respuesta potencialmente más eficaz en términos de programas futuros.
