Programs to improve the sexual health and well-being of transgender individuals
Key take-home messages
- There are a lack of high-quality interventions that demonstrate positive impacts on the health of transgender women.
- A small number of interventions have had a positive effect on HIV risk among transgender women and men, however many of these projects were pilot studies that used convenience sampling techniques and small sample sizes. Future interventions should continue to have multiple components that address the complexities of HIV risk for transgender men and women.
- HIV prevention efforts need to be tailored to the unique needs of the transgender community while addressing multiple health issues.
