    QLatinX and Talk Test Treat will be offering a variety of free community support services and health services, like HIV testing, prevention and education.

    Over 19% of uninsured Americans are Latinos who continue to face numerous cultural, linguistic and financial barriers to accessing health care services, according to a 2021 report by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation.

    Community-based organizations like QLatinx continue to fight for the work to develop and sustain culturally competent health education and outreach interventions within the country.
