This poster presents the results of a study on measuring HIV stigma among all levels of health facility staff. A tool developed by international program implementing agencies, university and non-university based researchers, the global network of people living with HIV (GNP+), and UNAIDS was field-tested to refine it and create a brief questionnaire that can be used s a standalone survey or a module in a broader HIV survey for health facility staff. The poster was presented by staff of the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project at the 17th International Conference on AIDS and STIs in Africa in December 2013, in Cape Town, South Africa.
