There are various components to this project which include a stigma measurement tool, the Stigma Index (operating globally), an oral testimony component, and a media development component.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-1"> <div class="field-label">Communication Strategies:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><Br /><br /> <i>The Stigma Index - some background</i><br /> <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.stigmaindex.org/" target="_blank">The Stigma Index</a> is a tool to measure stigma and discrimination faced by people living with HIV. The results of the Stigma Index provide quantitative evidence of stigma and discrimination, and it is designed to allow stigma and discrimination to be compared over time. It follows the GIPA (Greater Involvement of People Living with HIV and AIDS) principle in that it is driven by people living with HIV (PLHIV) and their networks. In each country, a team of PLHIV is trained to use the Stigma Index questionnaire to interview large numbers of PLHIV about their experiences of HIV stigma.<bR /> <bR /></p> <p><i>Oral Testimony</i><br /> In contrast to the data collection for the Stigma Index, oral testimony interviewing is open-ended, in-depth, and audio-recorded; it is intended to provide a different kind of evidence - detailed, individual, first-person accounts. In each of the three countries - Mozambique, Ethiopia, and Swaziland - at least 10 PLHIV (men and women) were selected to participate in a five-day oral testimony training workshop. Most of those participating had also worked as community researchers on the Stigma Index, and many were adherence counsellors. The workshops covered questioning skills, topics for interview, recording equipment, interview relationships, informed consent, and transcription.<bR /> <bR /></p> <p>As explained by OTW, "following each workshop the interviewers returned to their home areas, recorded and transcribed a further four interviews with people living with HIV. They generally interviewed people they had an existing relationship with through their support associations. Project coordinators supported the interviewers during this process and organised a review meeting halfway through the interview collection. Interviewers also came together at the end of the process to share their analysis of the testimonies and ideas for communication."<bR /> <bR /></p> <p><i>"21 stories 21 days"</i><br /> In total, from all three countries, 140 women and men living with HIV shared their experiences, memories, and views with the assurance of maintaining anonymity. Thirty-one of these testimonies were translated into English and, from these, 21 were selected to form part of the "21 stories 21 days" initiative run by OTW. Every day from July 1 until the July 21 2014, the project shared extracts from 21 oral testimonies. The extracts were shared on <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://oraltestimony.org/2014/06/30/21-stories-21-days/" target="_blank">the OTW website</a> and shared daily through their <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://twitter.com/OralTestimony" target="_blank">Twitter</a> and <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=https://www.facebook.com/OralTestimonyWorks" target="_blank">Facebook</a> pages. <br /><br /> Following this, the IPPF launched <i>“Stigma is Still my Most Serious Challenge"</i> at the International AIDS Conference 2014. In this publication, men and women "talk about HIV-related stigma and describe their courage, inspirations, suffering, resilience and determination to trigger change. Their stories demonstrate how stigma and discrimination can hinder access to vital support and care and the prevention, testing and treatment of HIV." <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.ippf.org/sites/default/files/web_ippf_otw_hiv_stigma1_2.pdf" target="_blank">Click here</a> to download this publication. <Br /><br /> At a national level, OTW and IPPF are supporting partners to communicate these testimonies to national audiences through radio and community dialogues. <br /><br /></p> <p><i>Media Development </i><br /> In addition, the Panos Global AIDS Programme (GAP) together with Panos Eastern Africa and Panos Southern Africa worked with national partners to set up training and fellowship programmes for national journalists to produce improved and increased print coverage on HIV stigma. The media work is being informed by the experience and outcomes of the oral testimony work in each country. The first media workshop took place in Swaziland in May 2012, and a total of 30 articles appeared in the national media across the three project countries. </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-6"> <div class="field-label">Development Issues:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>HIV/AIDS, Stigma</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-long-text-2"> <div class="field-label">Key Points:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>OTW is a Community Interest Company set up in 2013 to build on the legacy of <a href="/redirect.cgi?r=http://www.panos.org.uk" target="_blank">Panos London's</a> two decades of oral testimony activities.
