HIV +ve Anti Stigma and Discrimination campaign

Welcome to the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde HIV Anti Stigma and Discrimination campaign launched on 7th September 2015.

Here you will find information on the work we are doing to tackle and reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. We have been working closely with people living with HIV to create new resources and a staff campaign.

Take a look at the site, watch the stories of patients experiences, and find out about training.

Come and say hi when you see us out and about with the campaign road shows.

Together we can make HIV related stigma and discrimination a thing of the past!

Supporting Statement by Robert Calderwood, Chief Executive

"Improving the patient experience must be a primary goal for all healthcare and support staff and our increased efforts to capture patient feedback has given us a great opportunity to make positive changes.

"One group of patients have let us know of their experiences when coming into contact with our services and how sometimes they have felt stigmatised as a result of their condition. Research resulting from the views expressed by patients with HIV revealed that there is a real need to educate staff in general about the condition and the perceptions of risk.

"I am in full support of the planned HIV Anti-Stigma and Discrimination Campaign which will launch in September. The campaign will involve HIV patients telling their personal stories and the creation of educational and awareness materials."
