  • A Community Approach to Overcoming Stigma
    Thomas Knoble, San Francisco Department of Public Health www.sfdph.org

    Stigma is all around us. We know it when we feel it, yet it is still hard to label, therefore making it hard to address it. HIV related stigma quick becomes layered, with other oppressions, causing even more difficultly in addressing it. Stigma impacts self-esteem, adherence, self-perception and isolation, and needs to be stopped. This interactive breakout session will draw on community knowledge to define stigma, and then start a process on to address the long-standing unmet need to respond to it. This will be an opportunity for community and providers to come together to partner on creating healthier environments for everyone.

    Calicia White and Angelica Lindsay-Ali, Ebony House www.ebonyhouseinc.org

Attention will be paid to the realities of intersectionality and the use of cultural humility in establishing an informed approach to adherence challenges.

  • Disruptive Innovation Think Tank
