Here Are The Many Health Responses Observed In A Segment Of The Society.
We have all seen the social stigma of HIV in being grounded in racism, homophobia and even sexism, and the stigmatization of COVID-19 has already occurred in the community. This social stigma is a bit complex and as of now it is omnipresent. This is acting as a driver of social hierarchy. The extent to which social stigma has weakened efforts to slow HIV transmission is challenging to quantify, nevertheless it is acknowledged as one of the most formidable social factors working against HIV prevention and treatment. Stigma in a viral outbreak is viewed as a process where individuals living with the virus experience status loss as a result of their viral positive status, as is observed with the HIV. Those who experience stigma are devalued, ostracized and many a times ignored as per the data shared and valued by many research firms. As in the case of COVID-19, the core elements of social stigma and social hierarchy are currently unfolding. The scenario is that all the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems have elevated morbidity and mortality related to COVID-19 relative to other groups of people. The political discussion is still rife which is considering the social tipping point of protecting populations that are viewed as most vulnerable. Say for instance advocacy for the need to protect all human life. This up against and as a correlation to advocacy for weighing the value of human life. What do these actions do? They effectively create an in-group vs out-group mentality in the community. This is a social hierarchy and is having a detrimental impact on the public health measures. These establishment of the in-group versus the out-group perpetuates to the devaluation of the out-group members. Further bolstering disproportionate power and influence of in-group members. It is used as a justification for the mistreatment and disregard of out-group members. Say for instance, the use of the phrase “Chinese virus” a term coined and used by many for COVID-19 serves to establish social dominance, blame and social delineation, all justifications for acts of discrimination, in this case, against people of a particular Asian heritage. Approaches to addressing of the stigma in the context of promoting a well-being quotient and a disease prevention behavioral prospect exists and will likely provide many relevant tools applicable to addressing of COVID-19. Interventions to address of stigma have now been developed. These are all that target individuals, health care workers, communities, and social figures.
