Resilience and empowerment training:
reducing HIV-related self-stigma and promoting well-being of people living with HIV
Thema: Sociale uitsluiting en eenzaamheid
Persons living with hiv (PLHIV) still face stigmatization in the Netherlands. Self-stigma has a negative impact on treatment adherence, HIV status disclosure, psychological well-being, quality of life and other health outcomes.
The first part of this project consists of a needs assessment in which different studies were conducted (systematic review, large survey study, and a qualitative study) to explore how self-stigma affects PLHIV in the Netherlands. Special attention was paid to men who have sex with men and women with a migration background.
The second part of our project consists of the development, implementation, and evaluation of a self-stigma reduction intervention. The project is a close collaboration between stigma researchers, PLHIV and the OLVG hospital.
In September 2021 the RESET workshop will be open for participation.
