GCS Approach India

A Gender and Culturally Sensitive Approach for Measuring Community Stigma towards HIV/AIDS among South-Asian Communities
The Conference was one of the best scientific gatherings I have attended. The approach to the topics were scientific but realistic, addressing challenges that development workers face on the field in clear and simple terms. What was most exciting was the opportunity to interact with like-minded people from both Canada and other LMICs, who are passionate about helping others. 2017 delegate

This project responded to a need expressed by rural Indian leaders concerning high levels of stigma towards HIV/AIDS in their communities. It developed a gender and culturally sensitive approach to engage rural communities in dialogue about HIV, building on Canadian and international expertise. Partnerships were formed between CSIH and other NGOs and research communities involved in HIV work globally, including people living with HIV and indigenous peoples.
