In this webinar presentation, the USAID- and PEPFAR-funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) project offered an overview of its stigma-reduction package developed for health facilities. The package is based on a globally validated measurement tool and a “best of” set of participatory training materials based on experiences in nine countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and South and Southeast Asia. This total facility approach for reducing stigma and discrimination in health facilities covers all staff working in a health facility, from support staff through clinicians. Developed in collaboration with experts and health facilities, this package brings together three key intervention elements: assessment, participatory training, and a focus on facility policies and environment. This package has been adapted for use in multiple countries in the Caribbean and is the basis for Thailand’s national roll-out of stigma and discrimination-reduction programming.
