This program seeks to stimulate new and impactful research towards the development of stigma reduction interventions leading to better outcomes for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS and on the quality of life of People Living with HIV/AIDS (PLWH) in LMICs.

The overall goals are to understand how to reduce stigma as a factor in HIV transmission, to eliminate or mitigate the aspects of stigma that limit beneficial health outcomes for the infected and at-risk individuals and communities, and to conduct exploratory studies to determine the feasibility of stigma-reduction interventions related to HIV prevention, treatment and/or care in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs).

The objective of this FOA is to lay the groundwork for, or pilot, stigma-reduction interventions to improve HIV health seeking behavior across the HIV prevention and care continuum and improve biological and mental health outcomes for PLWH or their caregivers. In the context of an intervention, the areas of focus may include but are not limited to:

  • Adapting, developing, validating or implementing stigma-reduction interventions in PLWH. Target populations may include adolescents and/or youth, caregivers, and other key populations such as sex workers, people who inject drugs, transgender people, prisoners, and men who have sex with men, among others.
  • Adapting, developing, or validating measurement instruments to assess the success of the intervention in reducing stigma and in improving health outcomes.
  • Formative research on novel stigma-reduction interventions to understand the obstacles to seeking care.
  • Formative research to assess the complexities in layered or intersecting stigma that might lead to strategies to address the synergistic burden.
  • Studies to assess stigma-reduction interventions in specific social groups (for example, unmarried pregnant women); or across multiple groups (for example PLWH and their health care workers) linking to a health outcome such as decrease in transmission.
  • Studies to assess the association of structural level stigma-reduction interventions with better health outcomes; for example, modifiable structural factors such as health policy and its impact on health outcomes.
  • Tools for addressing stigma awareness in HIV+ adolescents, youth, young children and orphans and increase their participation in care-seeking and prevention services.

The award ceiling of this NOFO is $150,000.
