The Delivering HIV Prevention and Care to Transgender People web-based CME/CEU programexternal icon is designed to assist providers caring for transgender people, with a focus on transgender women. The web-based program presents the latest data on transgender women and HIV, lists health disparities, describes the roles that stigma and discrimination play in contributing to these disparities, and provides tips on how to provide patient-centered care. The program presents strategies to make clinical environments more welcoming to transgender patients and covers critical topics to HIV prevention and care among transgender women—including PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis); initiation of and adherence to ART (antiretroviral therapy); safer sexual behaviors; STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and HIV; and other important topics such as interactions with hormone therapy, partner-notification services, and referral resources. The video programexternal icon is organized into five chapters:

  • Transgender concepts, identity, and health disparities
  • Providing patient-centered care to transgender people
  • HIV epidemiology in transgender women
  • HIV prevention strategies for transgender women
  • Additional resources
