Efforts are stepping up in educating and increasing public awareness about HIV, as the International Business Division???s HIV Committee continues its edutainment series entitled: An Afternoon of Intrigue, on Wednesday, April 8, from 12:30 to 1: 30 p.m.
It will take place at the Ministry of Transport and Works, The Pine, St. Michael.??According to the HIV Focal Point of the International Business Division, Marlene Hewitt, the event will address HIV stigma and discrimination in the workplace.
???It promotes the HIV message in a dynamic and exciting manner while exposing the Ministry???s staff to biases and prejudices within the workplace against the key population of HIV affected and non-affected persons. It therefore seeks to bring about behavioural change,??? she explained.
The event will be followed by a question-and-answer session on Stigma, Discrimination and Human Rights in the Workplace, led by Nalita Gajadhar.
