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.

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.
