Stigma and discrimination are fueling the HIV epidemic in the Caribbean. In Jamaica, those living with HIV often face social isolation and harassment.

Stigma also stops at-risk people from seeking information on prevention and testing, altering their sexual behavior, and accessing counseling, support groups and treatment.

In this video, Kwame Dawes talks about HIV-related stigma with people living with the disease and those at risk of contracting HIV.

An extended essay by Kwame Dawes on HIV/AIDS in Jamaica is featured in the Spring 2008 issue of the Virginia Quarterly Review: www.vqronline.com

A synthesis of video, photographs, poetry and music, all inspired by Kwame's reporting in Jamaica, can be found on the interactive site: www.livehopelove.com

This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Hope: Living and Loving with HIV in Jamaica" (http://bit.ly/sKsxhj).
