International Rectal Microbicide Advocates (IRMA) and AVAC have partnered with Epicentro gay men’s community center in Lima, Peru to bolster HIV prevention education and advocacy in Latin America. Epicentro is adapting advocacy materials on PrEP and rectal microbicides, conducting community surveys on awareness of recent developments in HIV prevention research and gay men’s concerns and priorities. They held their first advocacy call with their new network, La Red, on August 25. You can follow their work on the IRMA-ALC blog and an active Facebook page.
