Abstract:

In Barbados and Jamaica, the PEPFAR- and USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) has delivered two-day stigma-reduction trainings to health facility staff. Adapted from a longer curriculum, the trainings comprehensively address stigma and discrimination by involving all health facility staff (including receptionists, pharmacists, nurses, and administration staff). HPP is also helping facility staff develop posted “codes of conduct” which outline the expectations for stigma-free services, regardless of HIV status, sexual orientation, or gender.

The codes of conduct posters feature health facility staff photos and contact information for clients to report instances of discrimination. The codes of conduct are being rolled out across health facilities in Jamaica, Barbados, and other countries across the Caribbean.
