Can I get the activities for an intervention to eliminate stigma among nurses who are treating HIV/AIDS patients?

Thanks for writing. There is no simple answer to your question. Programs to address HIV-related stigma are gaining greater attention, although most of the studies deal with populations outside of the US. Stigmatization by US healthcare providers has significantly improved, although it still occurs.
Some of the best work on HIV-related stigma comes from the International Center for Research on Women. This study summarizes some of their findings about components of an effective program. It will be a good start.
