Pictured above are two Zimbabwe United Methodist Women Global Fund CCM HIV Committee members, living with HIV/AIDS in Harare. They will be working under the supervision of Hannah Mafunda, UMCOR Health Board Coordinator, to conduct research on issues relating to stigmatization toward persons with HIV/AIDs within local church communities.
The stigma index research is supported by the Global Fund, UMCOR Health, the Zimbabwe Episcopal Health Board and Zimbabwe National Network for People LIving with HIV. Preliminary set-up of the study is scheduled to begin the final week of February.
