Stigma Reduction in Faith Communities Initiative on BBC News

1 Dec 2014

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.
