The Youth Disclosure Project Is Underway!
After months of preparation and networking with Muluba Habanyama , the HIV disclosure project has formed a collaboration with Youth Co. and Canadian Positive People’s Network. In this phase of the project feedback is being gathered to learn about youth experiences with disclosure of their HIV status. The following post, from Youth Co website, explains the questionnaire as a method of gathering data in order to develop a disclosure workshop which suits the needs of youth:
Talking about our HIV status
At YouthCO, peer support is our thing. We’ve been building awesome communities of youth who connect with each other since 1994, and we aren’t about to stop now. Along with the HIV Disclosure Project, and the Canadian Positive People’s Network, we are working to develop a workshop for youth living with HIV to talk about disclosing our HIV status.
We want to hear from you about your experiences with sharing your HIV status, and what you would want to see in a workshop. This workshop is being developed by-and-for youth living with HIV to have an opportunity to talk about HIV disclosure.
In order to get this information, we’re offering 10 youth living with HIV a $15 honouraria to complete an anonymous online survey. We’re asking questions about your experiences with disclosing your HIV status.
The information you provide here will be used to help us think about some of the experiences we encounter when it comes to sharing our status. The information will help us to develop a disclosure workshop based on your feedback, interests and needs as a youth living with HIV. We will not share this information in a way that could identify you.
