SPNS Transgender Women of Color Initiative Intervention Manuals

SPNS Transgender Women of Color Initiative

Innovative models for linking and retaining transgender women of color in HIV care, developed by a SPNS multi-site demonstration project.

Manuals were developed under the HRSA SPNS Transgender Women of Color Initiative, which funded nine demonstration states. Sites developed innovative interventions to improve timely entry, engagement and retention in quality HIV care for transgender women of color living with HIV who:

  • Are infected with HIV but unaware of their status
  • Are aware of their status but have never been engaged in care
  • Are aware but have refused referral to care
  • Have dropped out of care
