HIV-rela­ted dis­cri­mi­na­tion consulting

Even today many peo­ple living with HIV suf­fer from dis­cri­mi­na­tion and iso­la­tion in dif­fe­rent areas of life. At the work­place, in the health sys­tem, or their pri­vat life, dis­cri­mi­na­tion due to the HIV dise­ase is not uncom­mon. Those expe­ri­en­ces shape and nega­tively influence both self-con­fi­dence and self-esteem. It can the­r­e­fore influence the health beha­vior of the affec­ted. Fur­ther­more, these nega­tive expe­ri­en­ces often have the con­se­quence that affec­ted peo­ple sub­con­sciously put them­sel­ves in the role of the vic­ti­mi­zer, belie­ving that they are to blame for the dis­cri­mi­na­tion they experience.

On a poli­ti­cal and social level, Han­nö­ver­sche AIDS-Hilfe e.V. is an active advo­cate for the inte­rests of peo­ple living with HIV. Through the newly foun­ded anti-dis­cri­mi­na­tion agency, Han­nö­ver­sche AIDS-Hilfe e.V. is not only a ref­rence point, but also the voice for peo­ple living with HIV.
