The series of workshops on learning about and tackling drug addiction, sex work and hiv-related stigma and discrimination



Within the framework of the project entitled “Learning about and tackling HIV-related stigma and discrimination”, the Institute for Social Development Studies (ISDS), supported by PACT, continued developing toolkits for enhancement of capacity in reduction of HIV-related stigma and discrimination in Vietnam.

A workshop entitled “Learning about and tackling drug addiction and sex work-related stigma” was organized by IDSD for representatives of Center for HIV/AIDS prevention, offices of Public Security (at provincial and grassroots levels), Department of Social Evils Prevention (at provincial level and Centers No.5 and 6 of the province),  staff and local partners in 9 provinces (Hanoi, Haiphong, Quang Ninh, Lao Cai, Dien Bien, Nghe An, Hochiminh city, Can Tho and An Giang) of PEPFAR project working in HIV/AIDS prevention and control from 10-11/3/2011 and 15 – 16/03/2011.

The aim of the workshop was to disseminate the toolkit to enhance the awareness, knowledge and skills about and minimize stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS and the group of disadvantaged people such as MSM, sex workers, drug users…

After 4 days, with the adoption of participatory approach, the workshop ended with great success and received positive feedback from the participants. All the comments and recommendations by the workshop participants were acknowledged by the ISDS compiling team, who then revised the toolkit on stigma and discrimination related to HIV and vulnerable groups. The toolkit has been published and is now available at ISDS library.
