Using the People Living with HIV Stigma Index in the Dominican Republic

The People Living with HIV Stigma Index was developed by the Global Network of People Living with HIV, the International Community of Women Living with HIV, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, and UNAIDS to provide evidence on stigma and discrimination that can be used to advocate for the rights of people living with HIV. To further PEPFAR’s goal of stigma reduction in the Dominican Republic, USAID and PEPFAR are supporting Project SOAR, in partnership with REDOVIH and ALSOLSIDA, to implement the Stigma Index 2.0 in six provinces in the country. This brief describes the study which seeks to  gain a greater understanding of the experiences of people living with HIV, and thus improve their access to HIV-related services and contribute to reaching the 90-90-90 goals in the country.
