Social determinants of health

Our studies prioritize social determinants of health as one of the key factors for health-related quality of life in the Dominican Republic, analyzing gender relationships, cultural patterns and structural violence phenomena, frequently related to stigma and discrimination towards specific social groups and communities. We actively collaborate with local and international non-governmental and civil society organizations to involve and assist vulnerable and hard-to reach populations, including migrants, residents of low-income rural communities, transgender women, men who have sex with men, female sex workers and drug users, among other frequently excluded and stigmatized social groups, in defining and transforming their social and health-related realities.
