Although the number of people living with HIV in Guatemala is fairly low compared to other countries, high rates of infection are found among vulnerable populations such as men who have sex with men (MSM) and commercial sex workers. ICAP is working with the Ministry of Health, civil society groups, and other partners to train and support health care workers to offer pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and ensure that outreach and services fit the needs of these key populations.
