Stigma Reduction in Faith Communities Initiative on BBC News
Between 2011 and 2013 GNP+ and Cafod (the Catholic aid agency for England and Wales) worked in partnership with local partners in three dioceses in Ethiopia, Kenya and Zambia.
Using the work carried out as part of the PLHIV Stigma Index, PLHIV networks and Cafod locally worked with faith communities and faith leaders in these three areas to quantify, further and address stigma.
Some of the personal stories from that work can be found at
It's so encouraging to see the mainstream media picking up on this wonderful piece of work that CAFOD and PLHIV networks have done .
To find out more about this initiative and some of the learning from it we have also attached the technical booklet that was produced.
