    During my time in Brazil from March to late June, I completed a paper about the experiences living with HIV/AIDS and the associated social stigmas. In this paper, individuals from an impoverished population in Salvador, Bahia Brazil were interviewed. Is this topic eligible for the anthropology requirements of this opportunity? Thank you so much for your time.
