Reframing Intersectional Stigma for a South African Context Integrating Tuberculosis, HIV and Poverty Stigmas.

Journal Article (Journal Article)


Intersectionality is closely intertwined with Black feminism within the context of the United States. As a result, intersectionality is often overlooked in non-Western contexts where racial homogeneity may reduce some of the impact of race on marginalization. This article will look at intersectional stigma from the South African context using the tuberculosis/HIV (TB/HIV) treatment environment in South Africa to exemplify intersectionality's versatility as an analytic method outside of the United States. We will use colonial history and contemporary research to reframe intersectionality considering a new set of stigmatized identities, including HIV stigma, TB stigma, and poverty stigma, to create a situation-specific framework adapted from a model by Bulent Turan and colleagues.
