Stigma Idex Project Featured in this Week's Drumbeat

The Stigma Index is a tool to measure stigma and discrimination faced by people living with HIV. The results of the Stigma Index provide quantitative evidence of stigma and discrimination, and it is designed to allow stigma and discrimination to be compared over time. Panos Eastern Africa and Panos Southern Africa worked with national partners to set up training and fellowship programmes for national journalists to produce improved and increased print coverage on HIV stigma. The media work was informed by the experience and outcomes of the oral testimony work in each country, with some of the oral testimony interviewers participating in the media workshops. A total of 48 journalists attended workshops, and 30 feature articles were published in the final year of the project.
