For a country to maximise the productivity of its workforce and the full potential of its people for economic growth and development, it must work towards reducing or eliminating discrimination against groups of people who are excluded from full participation as a result of that discrimination.

CAPRI in partnership with the European Union, with Ms. Saramaria Virri as the Researcher, is undertaking a study on the economic and societal costs of sexuality based discrimination in Jamaica.

The report seeks to examine the landscape of sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination in Jamaica, and how that discrimination can be directly and indirectly tied to negative economic and social outcomes and thwarted developmental prospects.
