HIV Infection, Risk, Prevention, and Testing Behaviors Among Transgender Women
||This report summarizes findings from the first NHBS-Trans data collection cycle, which was conducted in 2019–2020. Transgender women, especially transgender women of color, are disproportionately affected by HIV. This report provides descriptive, unweighted data that can be used to describe HIV infection among transgender women and the percent- ages of transgender women reporting specific behaviors, HIV testing, access to care, participation in prevention programs, gender-affirming medical treatment, experiences of abuse and harassment, and suicidality. Collecting these data is useful for assessing risk, access to care and treatment, the use of prevention efforts, and other social structural factors affecting HIV prevention opportunities for this population.
