A Peer Educator Diary from the Positive Action at Work programme
Basic information presented positively
If you are intent on tackling stigma you may wish to review the materials you currently use to promote HIV awareness and prevention. It is possible that they use fear or negative images to put their message across. Positive Action at Work attempts to present information about HIV and AIDS in ways that do not reinforce stigma.
A series of posters that inform, use positive images and provide talking points for employees can be downloaded. You can even tackle stigma directly with employees using one of our Work Cards to help them understand stigma and the role they can play in overcoming it. Trainers and managers can also use the Peer Educator Diary to prepare presentations and exercises.

Workplace materials are available in the following languages:
