Welcome to the HIV Stigma Study website


For individuals living with HIV there can be many challenges that are not health-related. Working, travelling abroad, obtaining life-assurance for a mortgage- all of these things can be affected by a person’s HIV status.

The aim of this research study is to gain a greater understanding of the reality of living with HIV in Ireland today, with a special focus on the impact of stigma on the day to day lives of people living with HIV. This research study will form part of the researcher’s* doctoral thesis on HIV and stigma in Ireland today. The study is currently seeking to recruit volunteers to participate in one-on-one interviews.

If you are interested in finding out more about the project or if think you would like to volunteer, please get in touch via email: e.vaughan3@nuigalway.ie or DM on Twitter: HIV Stigma Study@StigmaStudyIE.
