recommendations
Recommendations
  • HIV prevention interventions must be tailored to MTF transgenders.
  • Transgendered persons must have access to healthcare services that are sensitive to the medical and psychological issues related to gender transition.
  • HIV prevention interventions should include alcohol and drug assessments, and when necessary, referral to transgender-sensitive treatment.
  • Job training should be incorporated into HIV intervention programs.
  • Additional resources are urgently needed for HIV prevention and treatment services targeting transgenders.
