“This is the first time I have ever discussed LGBTQ health care with anyof my colleagues – it’s long overdue that we treat the LGTBQ community with dignity and respect. This is about humanity.”– Psychiatrist, SOGI Training Participant, Lima, Perú
|Diana Padilla, Kim-Monique Johnson,|
and Edgar Vargas, Lima, 2017
This resulted in a pilot training in the fall of 2017, and then evolved into a training-of-trainers (ToT) in 2018, for providers in Lima, Peru. These events were in partnership with The Colombo Plan’s Drug Advisory Program, and funded by the US Department of State, Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs. On behalf of the Northeast & Caribbean ATTC, three trainers from NDRI-USA, Kim-Monique Johnson, Diana Padilla, and Edgar Vargas, delivered the pilot training and ToT, The Intersection between Substance Use and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI).
