Beyond Stigma focuses on HIV self-stigma and gender-based violence. Beyond Stigma has partnered with Zimbabwean-based organizations: Zimbabwe Network of People Living with HIV and AIDS (ZNNP+), TrocaireCONNECT Z.I.S.T, and more recently, The Centre for Sexual Health and HIV/AIDS Research Zimbabwe (CeSHHAR) and Zvandiri Africaid to complete multiple research projects and ongoing interventions. Self-stigma can lead to serious physical and mental health consequences for those living with HIV or experiencing gender-based violence such as medication rejection and feelings of shame, self-blame, worthlessness and isolation. Beyond Stigma aims to reduce the negative impacts of self-stigma in Zimbabwe through formative research and programs such as 'We are the Change' and Wakakosha. Take a look below to learn more.
