Project Description

HIV stigma and discrimination have enormous negative impacts on women, and reducing internalized stigma has significant implications for the effort to engage women in HIV prevention and care. This study will devise strategies to empower women living with HIV in Vietnam to combat HIV and gender intersectional stigma. This study will lead to implementable and scalable approaches to promote women living with HIV's mental health and service seeking not only in Vietnam but also globally.
