Although stigma is considered to be one of the major barriers to reducing the AIDS epidemic in India, efforts to reduce stigma have not been sufficiently examined. In response, a partially computer-administered three-session stigma reduction intervention was developed and is currently being tested. This paper describes the technological design, development, implementation, and management of these in-person tablet-administered assessment and intervention sessions that are being used to evaluate the efficacy of this innovative stigma reduction intervention among nursing students and ward attendants in India.
