I am writing to you to signpost a survey which may be of interest to your membership and to see if you would be willing to share it among your networks.

The Joint National Survey on HIV-related Stigma in Healthcare Settings is currently seeking people to participate in this 10-minute online survey. (http://www.nuigalway.ie/hiv-stigma-survey)

The aim of the study is to identify the needs and priorities both of people working in the healthcare sector AND people living with HIV, so that adequate supports and guidelines can be developed to reduce HIV-related stigma in healthcare settings. 

I’ve attached a short blurb outlining the details of the survey and a graphic, which we invite you to share among your network if possible. I’m also happy to provide further information and discuss any aspect of the study with you.

Podiatrists are often overlooked in research of this nature, so it would be invaluable to have input from your members.

Many thanks and kind regards,
