This workshop examined societal forces, including stigma and discrimination, that lead to disproportionate rates of HIV and other negative health outcomes for transgender people. The Center of Excellence for Transgender HIV Prevention presented transgender-inclusive language, current issues, epidemiology, and specific recommendations for improving HIV prevention and care for transgender communities. Session attendees had an opportunity to discuss how to apply recommendations and add their own local perspectives.
