Addressing intersectional stigma in HIV testing interventions with refugee and displaced youth: lessons learned in urban and refugee-settlement humanitarian settings in Uganda
Knowledge gaps persist regarding stigma-informed HIV testing programs for refugee youth. This talk will present mixed-methods findings from research with urban (Kampala) and refugee-settlement (Bidi Bidi) refugee youth in Uganda on how intersectional stigma (e.g., age, gender, sex work, HIV-related, refugee-related, sexual violence-related) experiences shape HIV testing and prevention engagement, and how these findings were integrated into youth testing and prevention interventions in these humanitarian settings.
