Stigma in the Community

HIV/AIDS-related stigma and discrimination refers to prejudice, negative attitudes, abuse and maltreatment directed at people living with HIV/AIDS as well as their loved ones, associates, social groups and communities.

Organizations serving HIV positive clients face important questions regarding stigma and overall care.

This training is designed to increase the capacity of participants to improve the care, quality of life and emotional health of HIV positive clients by offering strategies to cope with stigma.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Understand the meaning of stigma, discrimination and related concepts
  • Identify the various ways in which clients experience stigma
  • Explore key sources of pre-existing stigma and discrimination
  • Identify consequences of stigma on a client’s willingness and ability to access services
  • Identify ways to address stigma at individual and agency levels

Our trainings are available to directly funded community based organizations free of charge.

Please request trainings using the CBA Request Information System (CRIS) and ask for NCHP.

In some circumstances, if you are unable to access the system directly, your local health department may be able to request on your behalf.
