Stigma and Discrimination

COVID-19: Spread Solidarity and love, not fear and stigma

A guide published by Nadine Ferris France from IGHN contains pertinent information around stigma and discrimination during this novel pandemic. 

Stigma, including self-stigma is like a deadly virus and it can kill. It is pervasive and it’s also universal. This guide contains information on what stigma and self-stigma can lead to and how we can communicate and share on social media. 

” When this is all over, do you want to look back and see yourself as someone who coped well, worked to help others, to be compassionate and kind, or do you want to look back and see how you contributed to the suffering by spreading fear and stigma?”
