Guidelines to Reduce Stigma Guide 4
This Guide is part of a series of four Guides to reduce stigma. The Guides are for managers, health and social workers and service staff to help them address stigma surrounding Leprosy and other health conditions. These Guides provide evidence-based and best-practice information from different disciplines, and recommendations for field workers on how to reduce stigma against and among affected persons and in the community. This fourth Guide explains the use of counselling at a basic level in dealing with stigma and explains different techniques and approaches for counselling persons affected by stigma. It was published by the International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations (ILEP) and Netherlands Leprosy Relief.
