Stigma

This is a programme aimed at ending discrimination and stigma towards people living with HIV and TB. It is funded by Soul City from the Global Fund. The contract started in July 2017 and will end on 31 March 2019.

The project is led by Ntate Jacob Mara in Botshabelo and Ntate Katleho Marumo in Mangaung.

We have 14 very passionate and dedicated community mobilisers and ambassadors who engage with many different groups of people in our communities by holding dialogues and outreach campaigns. They work in close collaboration with all our other Mosamaria programmes. We believe that if people living with HIV and TB can feel comfortable about disclosing their status to their families and the public, this will enable everyone to accept HIV and TB and to know the scientific facts about these diseases and myths and stigma will fall away.
