  1. Fulltext. Public reactions to AIDS in the United States : a second decade of stigma.

    Article - En anglais


    The pervasiveness of stigma in the United States related to the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was assessed in telephone interviews with a general adult sample (n=538) and an African-American sample (n=607).

    Most respondents manifested at least some stigma.

    African Americans expressed greater support for policies separating persons with AIDS from others and a stronger desire to avoid these persons, whereas Whites expressed more negative feelings toward them and a greater willingness to blame them for their illness.
