Transgender People

In 2018, 1.9% of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) clients were transgender: 88.1% are from racial/ethnic minority populations. Transgender people, particularly, transgender women of color, have particularly higher rates of HIV infection. Rates are especially high among African American transgender women. Transgender people also face significant barriers to accessing HIV and other medical care and social support services. See the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau Fact Sheet, Transgender Clients: Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program, 2018 (January 2020)
