Please join us in congratulating DC CFAR Investigator, Ana Maria del Rio Gonzalez, PhD, as the recipient of the 2017 CFAR Adelante Award. Through Adelante, the Centers for AIDS Research strive to develop early-career investigators who focus on HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and care in the Latino/Hispanic community. Dr. del Rio Gonzalez's project is entitled, "Factors associated with PrEP intentions and use among Latina immigrant transgender women in the DC metropolitan area".

This study will focus on individual and social-structural factors associated with intentions to use and actual use of PrEP among Latina immigrant trans women, ages 18 and older, living in the DC metropolitan area. The specific aims are: (1) To gain a culturally-grounded understanding of individual and social-structural factors associated with PrEP intentions and use among Latina immigrant trans women in DC.; (2) to assess levels of PrEP awareness, intentions and use among Latina immigrant trans women, as well as changes in these levels over a 6-month period, and to examine how individual and social-structural factors are associated with these changes, and (3) to synthesize the qualitative and quantitative results, and assess the validity of the findings.
