In every country with available data, transgender populations are among the most at-risk groups for HIV. In 2017, global HIV prevalence among transgender people was approximately 13 times higher than among cisgender adults of reproductive age.[1] GATE and its partners recognizes the need for trans activists and organizations to build their capacity in monitoring the implementation, including expenditures of HIV programming at country level. 

GATE seeks to address the need to foster the capacity of trans organizations and activists to act as watchdogs in the implementation of national HIV responses.
