In this talk, JoAnne Keatley, MSW, discusses how transgender and non-binary communities are engaging in self-advocacy around HIV prevention, treatment, and research. Keatley focuses particularly on IRGT, a global network of transwomen and HIV, and how this international organization focuses on HIV prevention and treatment that is tailored to the particular needs of transgender women. Some of the other issues addressed by Keatley include how transmasculine people are working to have their identities acknowledged in data collection so that they are not grouped with cisgender men who have sex with men, how many transgender-led organizations are working to simultaneously address human rights issues alongside HIV work, and how peer-led education strategies can be extremely effective in combating HIV in transgender communities.
This session was originally presented as a part of Fenway Health’s Fourth Annual Advancing Excellence in Transgender Health Conference, which took place September 21-23, 2018.
