Voices of hope: stories from communities affected by HIV and AIDS
Prevention among transgender communities: Fabiana's story
Gideon Mendel/International HIV/AIDS Alliance

Fabiana knows the community and its problems intimately, having worked in salons and as a sex worker since she left home six years ago.

While the defence of sexual diversity is an immediate priority for Amazonas, the organization is planning to integrate HIV prevention at every step. Consistent condom use with clients and partners will be encouraged, and condom vending machines will be installed at hairdresser shops.
