“About 28% of transgender women in the us are living with hiv. One study suggests that 73% of hiv-positive trans women don’t know they have hiv. Simply being a trans woman does not automatically put you at risk for hiv, but risk factors for getting hiv seem more common in trans women, so it may be more important to take an honest look at those and how they can affect your hiv status. ”
The resource guide covers: 1) how to find more information on PrEP; 2) how to find an accessible healthcare provider; 3) how to ask for PrEP; 4) where to get support to advocate for yourself; and 5) better understand if PrEP is an HIV prevention tool you want to use.
