Reduction of Stigma and Discrimination of PLHIV And TB

Advocating equal treatment
and social justice

To actively reduced stigma and discrimination for people living with HIV & TB, advocating equal treatment and social justice.

This program was specifically focussing on Fisantekraal as a community to address the issue of Stigma and Discrimination.

Stigma and discrimination impact negatively on HIV prevention and treatment and must be addressed as it is a barrier to the increase and uptake of health services.

We facilitated community dialogues which resulted in a steering committee being formed and thereby action plans implemented.

SDR support groups were facilitated that empowered community members to speak about matters pertaining to stigma and discrimination.

We were able to network with relevant stakeholders to bring much needed services to the community through Jamborees and community awareness events.
