Abstract

There is a science to stigma measurement that brings TB stigma into focus. This book will orient the reader to the basics of TB stigma measurement. Mapping stigma becomes feasible once its underlying mechanisms are understood. The means by which bias and social exclusion are created is well understood. This chapter outlines the common architecture upon which different types of bias and hate are built by illustrating the basic process of “othering”.
