Stigma is one of the social forms that occur in labeling, withdrawal, loss status and discrimina-tion. The stigma about people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) is manifested by social rejection, lack of acknowledgment and discrimi-nation that will cause shame and fear for PLWHA to be invited to others. Spirituality can reduce the stigma that exists in peoples’ lives. There are still limited studies explored the house wife stigma regarding PLWHA. This study purposed to ana-lyze the relationship between spirituality with the stigma of house wife about PLWHA in Jember, the east part of Java Island, Indonesia. This re-search applied descriptive correlation design with cross sectional approach. The sampling was counted 84 of house wife who were reached by using proportionate random sampling. The results showed that the median value of spirituality was 37.00 and stigma was 17.00. Bivariate analysis using Spearman Rank Test showed that there was no correlation between spirituality and stigma of house wife about PLWHA (p value 0.213). Alt-hough there was no correlation between spirituali-ty and stigma, it does not mean the two variables are not important. Health workers are expected to improve spirituality among house wife in order to reduce stigma about PLWH in society, especially among house wife.
