July 11 Webinar: The Stigma of HIV Prevention
June 28, 2016
Monday, July 11
Stigma, however, is a nebulous concept that is often inadequately explained in the context of HIV care and prevention. What do we mean when we say that stigma impacts our efforts to scale up PrEP and other prevention options? What are the specific individual behaviors, cultural norms, organizational practices and government policies that contribute most to HIV prevention stigma?
Join Treatment Action Group and the HIV Prevention Justice Alliance for a webinar on July 11, 1:30 - 3 p.m. ET, that will explore different forms of stigma that continue to pose a significant barrier to accessing comprehensive HIV prevention services, including sexual and drug-using stigmas, racism, homophobia, and transphobia. We will also look at how we might better include assessments of stigma within HIV prevention research, discuss how prevention-related stigma is different from the stigma of living with the virus, and consider advocacy options for combatting stigmas related to HIV prevention.
