Ryan White and Transgender People
The HIV care needs of transgender clients parallel those of the broader Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP) client population in that they reflect challenges faced by economically disadvantaged minorities who often must grapple with housing issues and barriers to access to health insurance.
HRSA's HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) has multiple initiatives under way to support transgender individuals living with HIV, who comprise 1.8% of RWHAP clients. Learn more about initiatives focused on transgender women and men in our Ryan White and Transgender People blog.
See the SPNS Transgender Women of Color Initiative Intervention Manuals outlining innovative HIV care interventions for transgender women of color living with HIV.
