“Everyone as a Story: Survival and Leadership” (EHAS) is an educational HIV/AIDS treatment and care workshop wherein HIV-positive women use their personal experiences to highlight the issues, challenges, and triumphs of living with HIV. EHAS contains a five-part video series that depicts HIV-positive women discussing treatment options; ways of increasing provider/client communication and provider cultural competency; methods for addressing HIV stigma and discrimination; and the importance of medical adherence. Additionally, the EHAS workshop treats topics such as social networks, stigma, status disclosure, and initiation/adherence to HIV/AIDS treatment, which are important to leadership and involvement of HIV-positive women in changing the HIV pandemic worldwide. The workshop is conducted by members of SisterLove’s 20/20 Leading Women’s Society, whose objective is to engage HIV-positive women by becoming community voices, training them as mentors for young and newly diagnosed HIV-positive women, and increasing meaningful involvement of HIV-positive women in key decision-making roles for advocacy and policy.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the need to educate and support HIV-positive women and their health providers about key issues impacting women’s HIV treatment and care.
  • Address and reduce HIV-related stigma and shame among women and their communities.
