HP+ is designing and testing a package of stigma-reduction tools for health facilities. In Tanzania, HP+ has adapted the package to integrate an additional focus on stigma towards adolescents and young adults (ages 15–24). A key component of the project’s total facility approach is the provision of participatory capacity development for all levels of facility staff—administrative and support staff as well as clinicians. This guide (available in both English and Swahili) was prepared in consultation with local stakeholders. Once trained, teams composed of health facility staff, adults living with HIV, and youth living with HIV used the exercises in this guide to facilitate stigma and discrimination-reduction workshops for their health facility staff.
