Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, July 26, 2014: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact Homophobia has on HIV/AIDS management for LGBTI students in a South African Rural-Based University with the view of developing a "LGBTI-friendly" HIV/AIDS management model. Methods: Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) methodology was used to conduct this study. Individual interviews (n=12) and focus group interviews, (n=2 X 8)were used as data collection methods. An open interview format was adopted with the use of two open-ended questions focusing on the experience of stigma, descrimination and utilisation of the available HIV programmes on campus. Results: Data were analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis framework as outlined by Smith (2005). The results indicate that Homophobia could increases the risk of HIV infection amongst LGBTI students. University HIV/AIDS programmes do not embrace the LGBTI community. Conclusion: For the country to reach the Zero new HIV and TB infection, a level of Zero stigma and discrimination towards LGBTI students should be reached. Higher Education HIV/AIDS programmes (HEAIDS) should ensure that the institutions of higher education address homophobia toward LGBTIs and ensure that HIV/AIDS programmes on campus also caters for LGBTI students.
