Stomp out HIV Stigma & Discrimination

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Knowledge about HIV transmission and treatment has evolved since  it was first identified in 1981. Despite understanding on how to prevent HIV transmission and treat HIV effectively, stigma, discrimination and lack of knowledge about HIV/AIDS are contributors to underutilization of care and lack of resources. New infections of HIV are not declining in the south east especially in remote areas despite the tapering off of new HIV infections in other areas of the US.  

This session is interactive and will address the perceptions and beliefs about HIV through role play and conversation. There will be an opportunity to address fears, misperceptions, and give facts about risks, prevention tools, treatment and resources.
