The true cost of stigma
01 April 2011
The International HIV/AIDS Alliance piloted the Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology as a way to measure value for money in its programmes. One of the pilots is this evaluation of the social return on investment of the stigma and discrimination component of the Alliance’s Africa Regional Programme Phase 2 (ARP 2).
The study was carried out at two sites in Zambia during 2010 and used focus groups from each site to determine the stakeholders for the study, what happened to each stakeholder group, and what impact this had for the group.
