At their last meeting, the HIV/AIDS facilitators identified stigma as being a major issue in the communities where they work. Despite all the efforts to raise awareness, and despite the progress made in the treatment of AIDS, people living with AIDS continue to face discrimination and disadvantage because of the negative perceptions and behaviours of their families and communities.
With a recent donation to the project, two workshops will be run in June 2012 to address this issue, reaching 30 people and led by six out of the seven facilitators. The workshops will be supported by our local partner, Support for Community Response, with follow up activities planned to ensure key messages are translated into practice.
Although on a small scale, the ongoing efforts of the facilitators show a real determination to address the issues associated with living with AIDS and a deep commitment to improve the lives of those people affected.
