  • Description:
    Transgender people, particularly transgender women, are vulnerable to HIV infection. Available evidence suggeststhat, in relation to their population size, transgender women are among the most heavily affected populations in the United States. Gaps in knowledge about population size and trends in HIV infections, however, create significant challenges to designing effective prevention programs, directing resources, and tracking progress in this population.

    HIV prevention for transgender people is a core priority of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. As part of its High-Impact Prevention approach, CDC is working with public health partners, other federal agencies, and community leaders to address key gaps in HIV prevention and care for transgender people nationwide.
