Abstract

Background: The vast majority of research on HIV-related stigma has been cross sectional, and few studies have examined whether experiencing stigma is associated with sexual risk behaviors. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the prospective relationships between experiencing HIV-related stigma and symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as sexual transmission risk behavior. Methods: The sample included HIV-infected men who have sex with men (n=314) who participated in a secondary HIV-prevention study at their primary care site. Participants were assessed at baseline, and then completed follow-up assessments at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. Results: Experiencing HIV-related stigma was prospectively associated with symptoms of depression (β=0.16, p
