Brazilians living with HIV, especially the Afro-Brazilian population, face significant barriers to inclusion in the broader political, economic, and social life of their communities, are highly discriminated against across Brazil and particularly in the poorer northeast region of the country. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunities for all people, including by promoting job skills and enterprise development. Our grantee partner, Grupo de Trabalhos em Prevenção Posithivo (GTP+), offers training in civic and human rights and in food production and marketing to vulnerable groups in Recife. With the support of GTP+, individuals gain the skills and confidence to improve their living conditions and, in the process, their engagement in the broader political, economic, and social life of their community.
