Need of activities for Intervention
Aug 23, 2013

Can i get any activities regarding to intervention to reduce or eliminate stigma among nurses treating HIV/AIDS?

Response from Mr. Chambers

Despite many laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of medical condition, the stigma of HIV seems to linger on. Probably due to its connection with sex, which has always been a topic of scorn and fear in this country, plus many people still HIV as being very contagious as well as the total misconception and prejudice that it is a "deserved" condition, all of which are ridiculous.

The best activity I can suggest is to get a legal agency, bar association, or representatives of a local AIDS Service Organization to conduct sensitivity training for the medical staff.

Good luck
