0.2% of the population in Mexico are living with HIV. The rate of infection amongst marginalised groups including sex workers, men who have sex with men and transgender people is considerably higher. Stigma, discrimination and violence against these groups are having a serious impact on the effectiveness of the HIV response in Mexico.
We work with Colectivo Sol to build the effectiveness of community-based organisations to reduce stigma and discrimination, human rights violations and gender-based violence against people most at risk of HIV infection. Colectivo Sol also work to reduce stigma and discrimination within health services, to ensure that marginalinalised groups are not denied access to healthcare.
