Towards a health-enabling working environment: developing and testing interventions to decrease HIV- and TB-stigma


In the context of a devastating HIV/AIDS-TB co-epidemic and severe human resource shortages in the health sector, HIV- and TB-related stigmatization among the healthcare workforce does not only threaten the workforce’s own health but also the health of the broader population visiting the health facilities. As a response, the proposed TEAM project aims to (1) scientifically assess the extent and sources of HIV & TB stigma among the healthcare workforce and (2) refine and test innovative stigma-reduction interventions in randomly selected public health sites in the Free State Province of South Africa.
