Social Determinants of Health for Men Who Have Sex with Men and Transgender Women in San Salvador

by on December 18, 2014

Analysis of health problems from a social determinants perspective is a useful approach to identify overlapping areas across development sectors and reach development goals in education, governance, economic prosperity, and health.

In this research brief we analyze social determinants of health for MSM and TW in San Salvador by focusing on sex work and homelessness as social conditions that may influence the health of this population. Previous analyses of data from this study identified psychological pathways through which sexual stigma affects access to healthcare, stress, and well-being. In the current analyses, we explore the structural pathway through which sexual stigma may influence health for this population by limiting social and economic opportunities, and the resultant consequences for their health.
