This study investigates the influence of perceived acceptance of people living with HIV in Nigeria. The results reveal that gender and public self-consciousness jointly and significantly influenced an individual's perception of acceptance. Also, males with a high level of private self-consciousness scored higher on a scale measuring perceived acceptance than females with a high level of private self-consciousness. In addition, private self-consciousness and perceived stigmatisation jointly and significantly influenced an individual's perception of acceptance. The findings emphasise that the society is far from having an accepting attitude towards individuals living with HIV.
