The purpose of SCOR-B  is  to provide measures of  stigma  reduction outcomes  within key community groups   resulting from targeted  community based anti - stigma and  human rights interventions.    

The design  phase was supported by an initial scoping exercise in the target countries  while for  the   in the  pilot and testing phase ,  technical  RSDU staff came together with statistical  advisors of the RSDU Technical working group (TWG) to validate the stigma measures  in the region  - pretest  and analyses in one country lasted 3 weeks, validation  exercises  in one country  lasted 3 months and the pilot lasted  2 months.
