A qualitative project explored the lived experiences and social service needs of affected or at-risk Black African migrants, refugees and their family members in New Zealand. One of the main themes that emerged from the data is HIV-related stigma and the profound ways it affects participants’ lives—including the ways they access care for HIV disease. Another major theme relates to participants’ courage, integrity and their challenge of stigma.
