Abstract:
Stigma related to HIV and AIDS in Nepal is an issue that requires better understanding. Some prevention efforts, because of lack of cultural understanding, have paradoxically amplified the problem they were intended to reduce. In this paper I set out to identify the causes of stigma related to HIV and AIDS in Nepal and propose a prevention model that makes use of culture to reduce this more effectively.
