The project’s overall objective is to reduce stigma and discrimination against people living with HIV and AIDS (PLHIV) and reduce new infections in the South West province of Tanzania. PLHIV lack access to proper information, especially in rural areas. The project seeks to train women to combat stigma and discriminatory practices and to care for neglected, infected and affected persons in the community through home visits and social gatherings. The project will facilitate the incorporation of awareness segments into regular Sunday and Friday worship services, training seminars for 80 women and on-air live interactions between radio listeners and HIV and AIDS experts. The project is an initiative of the Moravian Church in Tanzania South West Province.
