Nosotros VIHviendo intends to support grantees through capacity building exercises, workshops and training. Those selected as a Nosotros VIHviendo grantee will design and lead a community program, art project or HIV-support group that will support Latine gay, queer, non-binary and trans men in accessing and engaging the healthcare system in a way that reflects the diversity of identities, desires, families, health settings and environments.
