‘We’re all in the same boat’ is a new toolkit that uses art and creative approaches with young people to tackle HIV-related stigma.

Stigma and discrimination constitute two of the most widespread barriers to effectively dealing with the HIV epidemic. Arts and creativity are widely recognised as an effective and innovative medium to prevent and reduce HIV stigma and discrimination, especially among young people.

This toolkit has been developed by UNESCO in partnership with the Alliance. Its objective is to generate discussions by providing interactive exercises that facilitate learning and raise awareness on key issues concerning HIV and AIDS related stigma and discrimination through arts.

It is aimed at teachers, youth workers, youth leaders, peer educators, or anyone else working with young people. The activities are aimed at 12-15 year olds, and activities include games, dances, drama, story and picture-related techniques.
