Announcing the people living with HIV Stigma Index Academy!

The Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), the International Community of Women living with HIV (ICW), UNAIDS and John Hopkins University are initiating a virtual learning space for people living with HIV to build a movement towards a world free from HIV-related stigma and discrimination.

We encourage W4GF Advocates to apply, as it is important for women living with HIV to be involved in the Stigma Index and track how the Global Fund is supporting a country to uphold and protect human rights and gender equality. 

The academy is recruiting diverse community members who are people living with HIV to join the regional virtual short courses, taking place between November 2021 to April 2022, starting with the East & Southern Africa region. See the detailed instructions on how to apply.
