Nosotros VIHviendo

About Nosotros VIHviendo
Launched in March 2022, Nosotros VIHviendo is a first of its kind for Equality California Institute. Nosotros VIHviendo’s goal is to build community power, strengthen LGBTQ+ and allied networks, and inform policy. Funded by Viiv Healthcare, we annually grant 6 grassroots organizations and/or projects in California and Nevada addressing high risk of HIV infection rates by ending stigma associated with living with HIV in the Latine gay, queer, non-binary and trans men community.

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.

Together, we continue to work to address structural issues—such as racism, HIV stigma, homophobia, poverty, and limited access to high-quality health care. Through these efforts, we’ll continue to promote testing and provide prevention methods and access to care such as PrEP and PEP.
