TGH Projects in Peru

Our research


The Trauma & Global Health Program’s Peruvian team is focusing on four priority research areas:

  • Development of screening protocols (clinical and epidemiological) for trauma-related disorders, alcohol abuse and dependency, and violence against women
  • Development and evaluation of community-based interventions for adults (men and women) and children among Quechua-speaking populations exposed to organised violence
  • Gender-specific strategies for healing and coping with mental illness
  • Mental health assessment of rural/urban populations exposed to organised violence and/or natural disasters

In Peru, the most affected areas are in the Southern and Central Andes region. The following areas have been selected for study:

  • Ayacucho: Huanta, Vilcashuaman, and Puquio
  • Huanuco: Huanuco, Red Leoncio
  • Prado, and Tingo Maria Junín: displaced populations in suburban Huancayo, La Merced, Pichiriaki, Satipo and indigenous communities (Ashaninkas)
