PrEP and trans people. What are the issues in different countries for trans people? What PrEP studies, trials and research are happening – are they led by trans people? What more do we need to know about PrEP? By us, for us? Or with them, for us?

[uix_dividing_line style=’solid’ color=’dark’ width=’100%’ opacity=’17’] 4:00pm – Trans Education + Action = Capacity For Health (TEACH) Mahri Bahati, IRGT; Engagement Navigator, San Francisco General Hospital Foundation; Khartini Slamah, HIV/AIDS Alliance; Alexandra Rodriguez, IRGT

Many trans-led organizations lack the resources, capacity, and infrastructure to be self-sustaining and therefore struggle to meet the specific HIV care and prevention needs of their own population. In
response to this problem, the IRGT conceived the idea of identifying, training, and nurturing a cohort of trans individuals who could then work with trans-led organizations within their respective regions to address these issues. In this session we reflect on the lessons learned in implementing this project.
