Stigma plays a fundamental role in generating and perpetuating health inequities globally. Although emerging research shows that drivers of stigma are similar across health conditions and populations, stigma research is often siloed, hindering researchers’ capacities to build upon progress made across disciplines, develop novel cross-cutting approaches for stigma mitigation, investigate intersectional stigma, and address the lived experiences of people who face multiple stigmas based on their health, gender, sexuality and/or social identities. It is critical that future research be designed and conducted to account for intersectionality, varied contexts, specific ethical challenges, community needs, and practices that might further stigmatize.
