Error in Table

In the original article, there was a mistake in TABLE 1 | Derivation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) knowledge items with correct responses noted and descriptive statistics and TABLE 2 | Derivation of HIV-related stigma items and descriptive statistics as published. The citations of scale items were misplaced such that they do not match the citation numbers in the reference section. The corrected TABLE 1 | Derivation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) knowledge items with correct responses noted and descriptive statistics and TABLE 2 | Derivation of HIV-related stigma items and descriptive statistics appear below. The authors apologize for this error and state that this does not change the scientific conclusions of the article in any way.
