Description :

Structured as a three-day program, this workshop manual highlights how stigma, discrimination, and gender inequality impede effective HIV and AIDS care, treatment, and prevention efforts. It is designed for people living with HIV/AIDS (PLHIV) who are involved with a PLHIV network and who plan to engage in awareness-raising or support activities with other PLHIV in their own communities. It may be adapted to meet the priorities and needs of different participants and varying contexts. The workshop manual was piloted with sub-district representatives of NETWO+ and HIV-positive men from the same sub-districts in the Morogoro region of Tanzania.
