The Positive Health, Dignity, and Prevention (PHDP) curriculum provides an easy-to-use set of resources to strengthen the capacity of people living with HIV to serve as leaders and advocates to improve health services and outcomes for themselves and their peers. Originally developed in 2014, this second edition of the PHDP curriculum reflects new evidence, an alignment with the Government of Jamaica’s adoption of WHO’s test and treat guidelines for HIV, and better addresses the needs of key populations. The manual, now consisting of 17 participatory learning modules covering a range of topics, including stigma and discrimination, treatment literacy, disclosure, and three new modules on HIV and human rights, sexual health, and resilient leadership, can be adapted for different stakeholders and country contexts.
The PHDP curriculum was developed through a participatory process, involving a diverse group of people living with HIV and key populations, in collaboration with the Jamaican Network of Seropositives (JN+) and the Jamaican Ministry of Health’s National HIV/STI Program (GIPA Capacity Building Project).
