FHI 360

TOOL DESCRIPTION


Jamaica Report (2012)
FHI 360’s Communication for Change (C-Change) project, funded by USAID/PEPFAR, in Jamaica provides technical assistance in social and behavior change communication (SBCC) to improve the quality and scale of Jamaica’s response to the HIV and AIDS epidemic. In keeping with its mandate of supporting civil society and government partners in developing evidence based programming and in working to create supportive enabling environments for most-at-risk populations (MARPs), C-Change conducted a study in 2011 on stigma and discrimination (S&D) within health and social services settings toward persons living with HIV (PLHIV), men who have sex with men (MSM), and sex workers (SW).

Bahamas Report (2014)
FHI 360’s Communication for Change (C-Change) project, funded by USAID/PEPFAR, in The Bahamas provides technical assistance in social and behavior change communication (SBCC) to improve the quality and scale of The Bahamas’ response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. In keeping with its mandate of supporting civil society and government partners in developing evidence-based programming and in working to create supportive enabling environments for key affected populations, C-Change
conducted a study in 2012 on stigma and discrimination (S&D) within health facility (HF) and social service settings (SSO) toward men who have sex with men (MSM) and sex workers (SW). Along with establishing a baseline for the level of S&D within these two environments, the study sought to understand the association between staff training, or lack thereof, and reported S&D. It also sought to explore the degree to which layered stigma existed.
