HIV Prevention with Latinos

This chapter reviews the HIV prevention landscape in regard to Latinas, rooted in both the experience of community-based organizations (CBOs), as implementers of interventions, and Latino-specific cultural scripts and values, providing concrete examples of HIV prevention programs currently being delivered. The chapter deconstructs four HIV prevention interventions, recently implemented by CBOs in different parts of the United States, into surface and deep level cultural considerations. Engaging with the structural and environmental contexts of HIV risk, the interventions addressed barriers to participation, took women out of their often-constrained social roles, promoted local activism, and engaged participants in conversations about migration and transnational identity as Latinas. The chapter ends by addressing future opportunities as well as structural barriers by looking at microbicides and PReP, interventions with the potential to place protection control in the hands of women.

Keywords:   Latinas, prevention, community-based organizations, microbicides, social roles, local activism, migration, transnational identity
