  2. Present strategies healthcare providers and persons with HIV to address stigma in healthcare settings by using reflection and engaging in ‘Difficult Dialogues’ as strategies to reduce intersecting stigmas and improve continuous engagement in care.
  3. Enhance awareness of and demonstrate how power dynamics between healthcare providers and their clients impact the quality of care.
