Reducing AIDS stigma among health professionals in India


The study plans to evaluate the impact of a culturally-specific stigma reduction intervention with nursing students and ward attendants in 24 Indian hospitals. This stigma reduction intervention was developed in India by the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) for Indian health professionals. The ICRW intervention modules are being adapted to be partly computer-delivered in order to increase the likelihood of a sustained impact. The study will evaluate the impact of this intervention on behavioural manifestations and factors underlying AIDS stigma among nursing students and ward attendants, to examine their endorsement of coercive policies, behavioural intentions to discriminate, and provider-patient interaction skills, using face-to-face interviews, computer-based assessments and behavioural observations at pre-, post-, 6- and 12-month follow-up.
