The HIV/AIDS pandemic has evoked a wide range of reactions from individuals, communities and even nations. Stigma is an important factor in the type and magnitude of the reaction to this epidemic.
African-Americans are further stigmatized because of their race and therefore face additional barriers in access and prevention services and/or treatment of their HIV status.
Under the NYCDOHMH-funded Wipeout Project, Gay Men of African Descent has designed a two free workshop titled, Understanding HIV Stigma and Discrimination and a faith-based training called Strategies for Reducing HIV & Discrimination. These interactive presentation are designed for individuals, groups and/or organizations with a commitment to the needs of African American men who have sex with men and are infected and/or affected by HIV/AIDS or are looking for ways to understand the effects of stigma and implement changes to reduce barriers.
