    • Abstract:
      HIV-related stigma and mistrust contribute to HIV disparities. Addressing stigma with faith partners may be effective, but few church-based stigma reduction interventions have been tested. We implemented a pilot intervention with 3 Latino and 2 African American churches (4 in matched pairs) in high HIV prevalence areas of Los Angeles County to reduce HIV stigma and mistrust and increase HIV testing. The intervention included HIV education and peer leader workshops, pastor-delivered sermons on HIV with imagined contact scenarios, and HIV testing events. We surveyed congregants at baseline and 6 month follow-up (n = 1235) and found statistically significant (p < 0.05) reductions in HIV stigma and mistrust in the Latino intervention churches but not in the African American intervention church nor overall across matched African American and Latino pairs. However, within matched pairs, intervention churches had much higher rates of HIV testing (p < 0.001). Stigma reduction and HIV testing may have synergistic effects in community settings.

    • Abstract:
      El estigma y la desconfianza asociada con el VIH contribuyen a las disparidades del mismo. Abordar el estigma en asociación con líderes de fe puede ser eficaz, pero hasta ahora se han evaluado pocas intervenciones en iglesias para reducir este estigma. Implementamos una intervención piloto con 3 iglesias latinas y 2 iglesias afroamericanas (4, en parejas de intervención y control) en zonas de alta prevalencia del VIH en el condado de Los Angeles, con el objetivo de reducir el estigma y la desconfianza asociada con el VIH, así como incrementar las pruebas del HIV. Esta intervención incluyó educación y talleres con líderes de grupo; sermones acerca del VIH dirigidos por pastores a sus congregaciones describiendo escenarios de interacción imaginaria; y por último, jornadas de pruebas del VIH. Encuestamos a feligreses en la línea de base y 6 meses después (n = 1235), y encontramos reducciones estadísticamente significativas (p < 0.05) en el estigma y la desconfianza asociada con el VIH en las iglesias latinas donde implementamos la intervención, pero no en la iglesia afroamericana donde implementamos la intervención, ni a través de las iglesias afroamericanas y latinas que fueron evaluadas en pareja. Sin embargo, en las iglesias evaluadas en pareja, las intervenciones arrojaron tasas más altas de pruebas realizadas del VIH (p < 0.001). La reducción del estigma y la realización de pruebas del VIH pueden tener efectos sinérgicos en entornos comunitarios. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
