A QUALITATIVE STUDY ON STIGMA AND DISCRIMINATION EXPERIENCED BY INDIGENOUS PEOPLES LIVING WITH HIV OR HAVING TB AT WORK

The International Labour Organization (ILO) Geneva engaged the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN) and the secretariat of the International Indigenous HIV & AIDS Working Group (IIWGHA) to undertake a qualitative study on stigma and discrimination experienced by indigenous peoples living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and/or having tuberculosis (TB) at work.

The development of this report began with a targeted literature review of seminal articles, grey literature, ILO and UNAIDS reports and citation mining for key references. CAAN then mobilized with indigenous contacts in four of the five ILO global regions to undertake one-on-one interviews and follow-up regional focus groups. In total, 21 interviews with indigenous peoples living with HIV and/or having TB, and five focus groups with leaders and representatives of indigenous peoples living with HIV and/or having TB were completed over three months. This engagement was aimed at exploring indigenous peoples’ perceptions and experiences of stigma and discrimination in the context of work. The interviews and focus groups were translated in English (as necessary), transcribed and thematically analysed by the writing team. This report offers a ‘snapshot’ of issues faced by indigenous peoples living with HIV and/or having TB, focusing centrally on the experiences of stigma and discrimination at work. Findings are limited by low numbers of individual contributors in each region.

DOCUMENTING LESSONS LEARNED AND MEASURING PROGRESS TOWARDS GLOBAL TARGETS FOR HIV, TUBERCULOSIS, VIRAL HEPATITIS, AND SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED INFECTIONS IN INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES

This project report responds to the need for documenting and sharing of domestic and international best and promising practices/approaches that demonstrate results toward meeting global HIV, TB, and hepatitis C reduction targets. It provides opportunities for Indigenous Peoples, researchers, and policy makers to develop recommendations to strengthen and align monitoring and evaluation systems to track results across the continuum of care.

CONDUCTING RESEARCH ON HIV AMONG INDIGENOUS PEOPLES: VALUES, APPROACHES AND GUIDELINES

Purpose of the protocol
This protocol can be applied to research projects focused on the epidemiology of the disease, interventions and implementation of strategies which aim to reduce the impact of HIV among Indigenous peoples. This is also a flexible tool that can be adapted to accommodate the specific needs of research teams in local territories.

The overarching goal of this protocol is to provide general guidelines that help in designing and implementing research projects on HIV and AIDS with Indigenous peoples.
The objectives of the protocol are:

  • To provide guidelines to assess the application of ethical principles and the main methodological approaches in developing research projects with Indigenous peoples
  • To provide an overall framework to facilitate the involvement and full participation of Indigenous peoples in HIV research
  • To offer a model of research design for HIV research projects with Indigenous peoples
