Stigma and Discrimination.
"Six decades after the [Universal Declaration of Human Rights] was adopted,it is shocking that there still should be discrimination against those at high risk,such stigma attached to individuals living with HIV.This not only drives the virus underground,where it can spread in the dark;as important,it is an effort to our common humanity...i call for a change in laws that uphold stigma and discrimination-including restrictions on travel for people living with HIV (emphasis added)."
