Reducing stigma and discrimination is essential to delivering high-quality care, achieving “95-95-95” targets, and safeguarding human rights. HP+, in partnership with the Educational Assessment Research Center and the Ghana AIDS Commission, designed and implemented a total facility approach to reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination in health facilities. Built on global best practices and adapted to the Ghanaian context, the approach consisted of three phases: baseline assessment, intervention, and endline evaluation. Key elements included 1) collection and participatory dissemination of baseline data to catalyze action and inform intervention design, and 2) capacity building to promote facility ownership and a sustainable response. Endline evaluation results show significant reduction in the drivers and manifestations of stigma and discrimination, demonstrating the intervention’s effectiveness.
