We invite you to participate in a study on the stigma-related experiences of people living with HIV in Alberta.
For this study, we are recruiting people living with HIV in Alberta who are 18 years of age or older to participate in an in-person or over-the-phone survey. The purpose of this survey is to obtain a deeper understanding of the stigma related experiences of people living with HIV in Alberta.
The survey should require approximately 60 minutes to complete and you will receive a $50 honorarium.
If you would like to participate in the survey please visit www.albertastigmaindex.ca
Survey responses will be anonymized. Your decision to participate or not to participate will not affect any existing or future relationships with any health or social service provider, nor will it affect your relationships with community members.
The results from this study will be used to inform frameworks and strategic policies to mitigate the impact of HIV-related stigma across sectors.
This study is being conducted by researchers from Mount Royal University, the University of Calgary, and the Alberta Community Council on HIV, in addition to the National Stigma Index team at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto.
This project is funded by a Canadian Institutes for Health Research: HIV/AIDS Community-Based Research Operating Grant, with coordination and research support from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Ontario.
