AIDInc Combats Stigma and Discrimination and builds resources and partnerships for sustainability
AIDInc successfully implemented a first of its kind 3 -year DfID Contract to combat Stigma & Discrimination in the Caribbean Region. This project was deemed high risk and first ever to adopt a regional human rights evidence-based approach to reducing stigma and discrimination in all forms towards vulnerable and marginalized groups. At the same-time the project established and piloted a tripartite oversight and supportive ecosystem structure for fostering implementation and long-term sustainability, in the form of a regional stigma and discrimination unit (PANCAP-RSDU) situated in Barbados and coordinated through the HIV technical unit (PANCAP) of the CARICOM Government - in Guyana.
Not withstanding several obstacles and bottlenecks, at project end, 3.5 years later, significant capacity and voice was built among civil society, in particular, marginalised communities - empowering them to meaningfully lead national anti - stigma and human rights initiatives, underpinned by strong horizontal and vertical partnerships, i.e. with National AIDS programmes faith leaders, media and youth organisations. Beyond the project, a number of resources and tools are available, adapted and used by community groups to continue to target and empower vulnerable groups and reduce human rights violations enacted towards them.
