This commentary discusses the project that will explore the impact of sexual behavior, HIV status, and treatment access of Venezuelan migrants in Peru. Using respondent-driven sampling, a network-driven probabilistic method, the biobehavioral survey (BBS) will be implemented in Lima and Trujillo in Peru. The biological and behavioral data collected will help government programs and NGOs improve access to HIV prevention, treatment, and care services in Peru and could serve as a model for other countries in the region housing Venezuelan migrants.
