Gabriela Huamán Vargas
Gabriela became involved with IRMA via IRMA-ALC (América Latina y El Caribe). 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.
She 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 would like to involve the medical community of Lima in the rectal microbicide field, making Latin America a larger contributor to microbicide research.
Gabriela also works with Un techo para mí País, an organization that provides housing for families in extreme poverty.
In her free time, she enjoys surfing the internet and seeing movies.
