Community providers have been integral to individuals’ health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Latin@ individuals face unique situations when reporting intimate partner violence (IPV) and navigating healthcare systems due disparities in language access and identification in healthcare systems (Robinson et al., 2021). Community providers are bridges to increasing access to care, preventing IPV, and supporting Latin@ survivors.
This tool will serve to:
• Equip community providers with culturally-responsive strategies to navigate health systems for Latin@ survivors of IPV
• Increase knowledge of barriers to healthcare experienced by Latin@ survivors of IPV
• Mobilize advocates to promote holistic and sustainable support
