Carlos Rodriguez Diaz, PhD: The Stigma of HIV/AIDS is Still Present

Despite the development in HIV/ADIS research, "We are not close to where we should be or where we'd like to be," shared Carlos Rodriguez Diaz, PhD, University of Puerto Rico.

At the 20th United States Conference on AIDS, Carlos Rodriguez Diaz, PhD, University of Puerto Rico, explained that the vast majority of his work focuses on exploring the various social inequities present in the grand scheme of the HIV/AIDS movement: poverty, unemployment, education, and access to healthcare. Diaz believed these social inequities are major structural factors that influences the ability that people might have to stay healthy.
