Advice on culturally sensitive care and support for professionals

A broad range of professionals, both medical and non-medical, are involved in the treatment and care of people living with HIV:

  • doctors
  • nurses
  • social workers

Conventional counseling strategies often work well with clients from ethnic minorities, yet some questions may be tricky for service providers from a different cultural background. Over the years, the intercultural team of the HIV-SAM Project has acquired a deep knowledge of the distinct cultural and social realities of the diverse communities of Sub-Saharan African migrants living with HIV. On request we offer advice to professionals on individual cases. We also give lectures on the topic.

Do you need advice on intercultural issues in service provision?

Contact Charles Ddungu, facilitator of the support groups

Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year

The Hiv-Sam team wishes you a healthy and prosperous 2021, may it become a blooming period for both professional and private life and may we soon see all HIV and Corona problems come to an end. Christiana, Ddungu, Lazare, Monique
