Abstract:
The negative stigma associated with HIV/AIDS negatively contributes to the mental health of
those who have HIV/AIDS. I’ll discuss the mind/body connection and how our emotions affect
our health. I’ll then discuss the stigma that surrounds HIV/AIDS, and how its rooted behind the
origin of HIV/AIDS and statistics on how its predominately spread (unprotected sex/drug users).
I’ll talk about underdeveloped countries and how their struggle to find financial means to support
their sickness contributes to their health (anatomically, physiologically and psychologically). I’ll
conclude my paper with different efforts that have been implemented already and can be done to
help combat the negative stigma, and ultimately contribute in ending the aids epidemic.
Research Question:
How does the negative stigma associated with HIV/AIDS negatively affect the health of those
infected?
Thesis: The negative stigma associated with HIV/AIDS negatively contributes to the mental
health of those who have HIV/AIDS.
