Published: April 1, 2010


This toolkit is designed by the Institute for Social Development Studies in collaboration with UNAIDS to guide action on understanding and challenging stigma related to men who have sex with men and transgender people and thus contribute to the efforts of HIV prevention program for these populations. It will equip individuals and agencies working in HIV prevention with the knowledge and tools to understand basic issues related to gender, sexuality and the sexual health of men who have sex with men and transgender people and to combat stigma. The toolkit includes a set of exercises that explore, understand and challenge the stigma faced by these two groups. The exercises are designed to assist those who work with service providers, community leaders, educators, social workers, men who have sex with men, transgender people and other individuals to facilitate the acceptance of sexual diversity, fighting for sexual rights and reducing stigma against sexual minorities and people living with HIV.
