Understanding and Challenging HIV Stigma: A Toolkit for Action

A free workshop, co-sponsored by Blackcap, CAP AIDS, and Toronto Public Health

Facilitators: Ross Kidd and Oratile Kidd

The toolkit was written by AIDS activists from over 50 non-governmental organizations in Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Zambia. It was developed to provide "front-line" AIDS workers a set of flexible educational materials to raise their own understanding and help them facilitate
awareness raising with community groups. The aim is to help people at all levels understand stigma--what it means, why it is an important issue, what are its root causes--and develop strategies to challenge stigma and discrimination.
