Meet a Friendly Rectal Microbicides Advocate: Gabriela Huamán Vargas

via IRMA

Vargas, a web developer from Lima, Perú , became involved with IRMA via IRMA-ALC.  She truly understands what a powerful tool rectal microbicides will be for women, MSM and transgendered people, and the impact rectal microbicides will have in situations where an individual can’t openly ask their partner to use a condom because of stigma or social conditions.

Vargas hopes to develop an internet site for Latin American users that can serve as a resource to learn about microbicides, and also provide important information about HIV/AIDS. She also hopes to involve the medical community of Lima in the rectal microbicide field, making Latin America a larger contributor to microbicide research.

Vargas also works with “Un techo para mí país,” an organization that provides housing for families in extreme poverty, and enjoys surfing the internet and seeing movies.
