My supporters: tackling HIV stigma – Activity

An interactive group exercise to illustrate the need to support those living with HIV

2016 Available in French and English

Clinic at Bailundo municipal hospital, Angola

From: Reveal toolkit: Health and HIV

Tools about HIV and wider health issues, including care and drug addiction

This activity uses a physical task to help a group experience the difference between having good support and having little or no support. It then compares these experiences with how someone living with HIV might feel when they have the support of their friends, family and community compared to when they are instead stigmatised or stereotyped.

The discussion questions and reflections on the parables of the Lost Son and Good Samaritan will help the group to identify ways of reducing HIV-related stigma and to support those living with and affected by HIV.
