Born to Break Barriers: A Conversation with Arianna Lint

Arianna Lint is a transgender Latina refugee from Lima, Peru. She immigrated to the US almost 20 years ago, after graduating from law school in Peru. In 2006, when she tested HIV positive, she felt that it was a punishment for her identity and she managed in silence. But after educating herself about HIV and getting involved in her community, Arianna has emerged as a leading HIV and trans rights activist. I had the opportunity to talk to Arianna about her work as an activist, starting her own organization, and how organizations can be more trans-affirming.

Breaking Down Barriers to HIV Care

We have the tools to keep people living with HIV healthy and virally suppressed, but here in the US, fewer than half of people living with HIV are taking antiretroviral medications, with only about a third virally suppressed. Looking closer, these rates are even lower among some underserved populations, such as transgender women of color, people living in poverty, and people who are unstably housed. To change that, we set off to find strategies to counter some of our country’s most stubborn barriers to HIV care, such as lack of transportation, housing instability, poverty, HIV stigma, and more.

Celebrating Positive Women's Leadership

This year I am thrilled to be attending the PWN-USA Summit, Speak UP! - a 3-day leadership training for women living with HIV. PWN-USA is now a policy and advocacy powerhouse in the US, engaging women in ways that are truly inspiring. They are an example of how to mobilize people living with HIV to impact policy and determine their own solutions to stigma and barriers to equity.

Science Alone Can't Create a Just World

I often talk about what it was like testing HIV-positive in 1992, when the only treatment available was AZT. Today, I consider the bounty of treatments available and the many more in development. I think of what science has done for me, this field, and for so many others like me. Yet science alone can’t create a just world. In its purest form, science can be cold, calculated, and simply focused on what can be proven true or false. Science has delivered both cures and bombs, has been used for both good and bad. While science has the potential to fix much of what ails us — it won’t work for the advancement of us all without being firmly steeped in and led by our values.

REPRIEVE Trial Investigators Launch "Follow YOUR Heart" Campaign for Women Living with HIV

Research shows that women are often underrepresented in HIV clinical trials. In fact, a study recently published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes found that less than a quarter of clinical trial participants for antiretroviral medications are women. Women's participation in HIV clinical trials is crucial to ensure findings help improve the health of both women and men living with HIV.
