Funding for a HIV stigma community

We are opening up funding for a new HIV stigma community.

In our stigma plans we published in March 2020, we committed to work with others to end stigma in London by 2030.

A key area is supporting people living with HIV to end self-stigma. This negative self-perception can deeply affect people’s wellbeing – affecting their physical, mental and emotional health.

Today we are launching funding for a community of practice. We are looking for six organisations with experience of tackling self-stigma, or those who work closely with communities most in need of this type of support.

Closing date is 5pm on Monday 12 April 2021.

Working with Fast-Track Cities London

The Fast-Track Cities London Leadership Group created a roadmap last year with the aim of supporting and amplifying London’s work to get to zero new cases of HIV, zero preventable deaths, zero stigma and 100% of people living well with HIV by 2030. In addition to the work we are already committed to, London’s Leadership Group also wants to be responsive to new opportunities as they come up.

If you are planning work which will directly contribute to London’s getting to zero goals on our roadmap, and are happy to work in partnership, get in touch to find out more by emailing hlp.londonftci@nhs.net.
