Primary Care for Key Populations in the Dominican Republic
Through this funded project, Northwestern University will partner with Clínica de Familia, a Dominican non-governmental organization providing health services in the Eastern Dominican Republic, to provide high-quality primary care to 840 individuals from key populations (sex workers, men who have sex with men and trans women). These populations have more limited access to primary care services than the general population because of stigma and discrimination in both public and private health centers. Health promoters from these populations will do outreach with the target populations in the community, and through social networks (both actual and virtual) and will incorporate project activities into routine clinical care for key populations at Clínica de Familia.
