A contextualization of transgender women and condom use using the HIV syndemic framework: Scoping review


Objective: To contextualize condom use in the transgender women population utilizing the HIV syndemic framework. Methods: Studies reporting condom use frequency and syndemic factors associated with HIV risk in transgender women were systematically searched. We followed the Scoping Reviews (PRISMA-ScR) checklist. Results: Social factors have a proven relationship with using condoms and HIV among transgender women. Syndemic factors, defined as co-occurring adverse factors that interact to contribute to risk behaviors, deserve a specific analysis to develop strategies to face HIV among transgender women. Conclusions: A syndemic perspective allows to generate specific health intervention and prevention policies to protect transgender women.
