Objective: To review HIV/AIDS-related stigma-reduction interventions for professionals and students from health-related disciplines. Methods: A scoping review was conducted to identify the key characteristics of the interventions in electronic databases up to April 2018. Results: 45 studies were included in the review. The majority of interventions adopted a combination of approaches. Interventions with multiple approaches and a longer duration/multiple sessions are more likely to achieve the intended results. While standardized measurements of stigmatizing attitudes toward people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) were lacking. Conclusion: Most of the included studies showed promise results. However, standardized measurements should be developed.
