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.
