She also has strong project management skills in a social development context.

Fellowship Focus: In her project, Lingping focused on creating an enabling environment for the role of PrEP in China. She translated, organized and disseminated the most updated information regarding global advances in new prevention strategies. She collected perceptions, opinions and concerns about PrEP from groups that would potentially use it, to help inform her conversations with civil society, policy makers and others. She engaged key stakeholders, including representatives from MSM community organizations, policy makers, civil society and other key groups in China to ensure that PrEP is on their agenda. She believes that research organizations can work together to introduce new concepts to HIV prevention efforts for MSM in China.
