Asia brown bag talk by Lai Sze Tso, Postdoctoral Associate at the Global Health and Medical Humanities Initiative (GHMHI) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Stigma and discrimination against migrants and members of the LGBTQ community make it extremely hard for these disadvantaged populations to access healthcare, but innovations in social media and online technologies have reduced many of these barriers, thereby resulting in improved knowledge and linkage to treatment for people seeking care.
