Reducing HIV stigma through appropriate language in scientific communications

This DZIF workshop addresses the use of appropriate, non-stigmatizing language in scientific communication in HIV research and follows the workhop "Bridging communities: Enhancing engagement through language in HIV research" during the International AIDS Conference 2024. 

Many communities that have experienced trauma, racism, or lack of compassion and empathic communication in their interactions with medical institutions may be sceptical of scientific evidence and reluctant to engage in health care. In all cases, language is critical.  

The workshop will bring together HIV communities and HIV researchers and aims to strengthen community involvement in DZIF-associated research. 

Workshop programme:

The workshop aims at all members of the DZIF research area HIV and all interested DZIF researchers.

The zoom link to the workshop will be published here soon.
