Summary
The purpose of this study was to: (1) assess the prevalence and intensity of stigma in Wyoming and compare those attitudes of urban people living in nearest urban center, (2) to compare the level of stigma between rural health care providers and the general public in a rural area, and (3) to assess the level and effects of stigma experienced by rural HIV-positive people. Data was obtained by telephone and Internet, using Herek's 1999 AIDS-Stigma Survey (Herek, Capitanio, & Widaman, 2002), which assesses the following aspects of stigma: support for coercive policies, negative feelings toward PWHAs, responsibility and blame, beliefs about HIV transmission, trust in expert information, avoidant intentions, and discomfort. Additionally, qualitative interviews assessing experiences of stigma were conducted with people living with HIV/AIDS (PWHAs) in Wyoming, and the HIV Stigma Scale was administered to these participants (Berger, Ferrans, & Lashley, 2001). This study involved 825 Wyoming residents, 314 Denver residents, 93 rural public health providers, and 15 PWHAs living in Wyoming. The results of the study indicate higher prevalence of stigma among rural residents than among urban residents, as evidenced by significant differences on 11 stigma survey items. For example, those endorsing the belief that PWHAs "have gotten what they deserve" were more likely to be Wyoming residents than urban residents (OR=1.98, p<0.001). Rural residents were also more stigmatizing than rural public health providers, as evidenced by significant differences on 7 stigma survey items (e.g. intentions to avoid a neighborhood grocer with HIV, OR=5.07, p<0.001). Rural participants had misconceptions about HIV transmission, with 59% believing that HIV can be transmitted by sharing a drinking glass with an HIV positive individual. Themes emerged from interviews with PWHAs in Wyoming, including: discomfort/avoidance and negative feelings, association with immoral behaviors, infallible beliefs, disclosure and rejection or support, relationship to health care providers, and urban and rural differences Data obtained from PWHAs validated the findings of the AIDS stigma survey of Wyoming residents
