We Learn, We Think, We Change: Martin Fisher Foundation and Stiggy Launch Campaign to End HIV Stigma

August 29, 2018

Stiggy

The Martin Fisher Foundation (MFF) together with Stiggy the stigmasaur, has produced a new set of videos about making HIV Stigma History.

These include up-to-date information on the impact HIV treatment has on transmission and on the effectiveness of treatment in general.

One video looks at HIV disclosure at work to tackle common prejudice.

One involves disclosing HIV to your family and another includes interviews where HIV positive people discuss the impact that stigma has on our lives.

A related social media campaign is using the hashtag:

#makingHIVstigmahistory

Follow Stiggy on social media (FaceBook, Intsagram etc) on:

@stigma_saur

To view these videos and for more details of the campaign, please visit the MFF website:

The website also includes information on other MFF projects, including the new HIV test vending machines and committing Brighton and Hove to be the UK's first fast-track city (to meet the UNAIDS 90:90:90 goal by 2020).
