AIDSTAR-One Case Study: Faith-Based Organizations and HIV Prevention with Most-at-Risk Populations in Mexico
The influence of religious groups in parts of Latin America positions them to target most at risk populations (MARPs) who may have been overlooked by traditional HIV prevention outreach. In Mexico, La Iglesia de la Reconciliación, VIHas de Vida, and El Mesón de la Misericordia are challenging assumptions about faith-based organizations (FBOs) and the role they can play in HIV prevention.
