  • Study - Access to Social Protection by PLHIV and Key Groups in Ethiopia

    Effective social protection is vital to reducing the disadvantages and inequalities that make people vulnerable to HIV infection, enabling PLHIV to live healthily and adhere to treatment, and mitigating the impact of HIV and AIDS on households. The study shows that among the respondents, 37% receive no support whatsoever and 24% have support from one program. Ethiopia has still big steps to take to achieve UNAIDS goal 10 on social protection: 75% of people living with, at risk of and affected by HIV, who are in need, benefit from HIV-sensitive social protection. The Ethiopian government, UNAIDS and the ILO have taken an interest in the study. A fact sheet summarizing the findings and recommendations of the study is available as well. more

  • Study report - Stigma and Discrimination in the Informal Sector Experienced by People Living with HIV

    The stigma and discrimination study was commissioned by our Community of Practice on HIV and Livelihoods to provide a rigorous foundation for its practice guideline on stigma and discrimination and to develop a methodology which partners could use in order to measure progress and determine the strategy in tackling stigma and discrimination. A tool was developed which assesses stigma on three dimensions in people living with HIV (internalized, anticipated and enacted) and in people ostensibly HIV negative (prejudice, stereotypes and discriminatory behavior). This tool could be used by other organisations working on HIV-related stigma and discriminations. more
