Abstract

Reducing stigma and discrimination in health care settings is one of most
important projects of the Sustainable Development Agenda.1–4 This chapter
synthesizes the techniques and guidance presented in other chapters to show
how stigma measurement could be approached in a health facility ecosystem.
The same approach can be used in other institutions like courts of law, mines
or prisons. The use of participatory and structured observational techniques
is introduced as a way to overcome biases from reliance upon self-reported
attitudes and behaviors.
