A Technical Brief HIV And Young Transgender People
PDF File Size: 1.79 MB | Download   
Young transgender people’s immediate HIV risk is related primarily to sexual behaviours, especially unprotected anal sex with an HIV positive partner, but structural factors in
addition to those already noted make young transgender people especially vulnerable to HIV. Stigma and discrimination against transgender people frequently cause them to be rejected by their families and denied health- care services, including access to HIV testing, counselling and treatment. Transgender people are almost everywhere denied legal recognition of their gender and may also be penalized by laws criminalizing same-sex behaviour. Some young transgender people have overlapping vulnerabilities with other young key populations, such as injecting drugs and selling sex, 1 which can put them at higher risk of acquiring HIV and also lead to increased stigmatization. In addition, experiences of abuse, exploitation and violence, including sexual violence, are commonplace.
