Stigma and discrimination (S&D) confronting people living with HIV and key populations violate people’s rights and can adversely affect HIV prevention, care, and treatment. However, standardized approaches for quantifying and responding to health facility S&D have been unavailable. The USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Project led a collaborative global effort to review, prioritize, adapt, and synthesize existing measures and programmatic tools. This effort involved researchers, trainers, other experts, and stakeholders. The resulting stigma-reduction package supports a comprehensive, research-to-action response in health facilities. This poster, presented at the 20th International AIDS Conference in Melbourne, Australia, in July 2014, describes the development of the stigma-reduction package and framework.
