Tuya's Story

After her own family’s experience of immigrating to the United States from Mongolia and their relief at moving to a community where friends could point them to resources, Tuya saw the struggles of other newcomers and decided she wanted to help. She found work with a program that does hepatitis B and C outreach, testing, and treatment referral for immigrants in the greater Washington, D.C. area and has been gratified to see the community’s growing trust in her, her organization, and the medical system in the U.S. 

Tuya's story is available in English and Mongolian.
