Planning and Implementing Health Resiliency Projects to Mitigate Risk of HIV for Transgender People in Lima, Peru during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: Lima, Peru
Key Outcomes:
Resilient thoughts and actions lead to deleterious health consequences due to transphobic stigma. Solidarity and resistance against stigma within a liberatory framework provide a path for resilient actions to lead to positive health outcomes. Extending material resources to grassroots trans organizations in Peru could serve as a novel and targeted HIV intervention.
