Abstract

The challenge of HIV/AIDS problems in Indonesia is stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA). This study was aimed to determine factors related to stigma to PLWHA among health student in UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, Indonesia. This research used a cross sectional study design involving 155 health students that were selected randomly as respondents. Data were collected utilizing questionnaire through google form then analyzed by performing Chi-square test. Results showed that 60.6% of respondents still had stigmatize against PLWHA. Poor knowledge (p value = 0.035), influence of peer attitudes (p value = 0.002), and parent’s attitude (p value = 0.003) had significantly associated with stigma to PLWHA. It is recommended that health students have to improve their knowledge about HIV/AIDS with reliable and valid source of information in order not to be easily influenced by the attitude of parents and peers regarding stigma of PLWHA.
