Implementing comprehensive HIV and STI programmes with transgender people
Practical guidance for collaborative interventions
This publication offers practical advice on implementing HIV and STI programmes for transgender people, with a focus on transgender women, aligned with the 2011 Recommendations and the 2014 Key Populations Consolidated Guidelines. It contains examples of good practice from around the world that may support efforts in planning programmes and services, and describes issues that should be considered and how to overcome challenges.
This tool describes how services can be designed and implemented to be acceptable and accessible to transgender women. To accomplish this, respectful and ongoing engagement with them is essential.
This tool gives particular attention to programmes run by transgender people themselves, in contexts where this is possible. It is itself the product of collaboration among transgender people, advocates, service-providers, researchers, government officials and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from around the world, as well as United Nations agencies, and development partners from the United States.
