Arjee Javellana Restar

Arjee’s research engagements in public health concentrate on promoting structural and behavior-based interventions to improve the health of communities affected by a multitude of adverse sexual and mental health outcomes, such as HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections, sexual violence, and suicidality, particularly as experienced by transgender and gender-nonconforming communities of color. This work includes advocating for institutional policies and practices that dismantle systems of oppression, inequality, and inequity.

Born in the Philippines, Arjee is now practicing public health to make visible the importance of health policies and equitable community resources in the lives and health of historically disadvantaged populations, including transgender and gender-nonconforming communities of color.
