Your voice is needed today! GNP Plus, the Global Network of People Living with HIV, has developed a survey to collect information from people living with HIV globally about ways to measure stigma. This is an anonymous survey, meaning your name will not be connected to any information you submit.
Information will be compiled from many different countries to create an international map of priorities in addressing stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV. We believe this work is integral to creating a world that upholds the human rights and dignity of all people affected by HIV.
Right now, North America is the only GNP+ region that has not implemented the Stigma Index in any part of our region. The survey closes next Monday, August 2nd, and we've just learned that they need more responses from North America -- especially from HIV-positive women and younger men. Please spread the word quickly, and take the survey today!
The survey is available in English, Spanish, Russian and French -- links for the survey in all languages are available here and listed below:
Please circulate widely.
