Despite bearing a high burden of HIV, violence, and other symptoms of injustice worldwide, people of transgender experience (trans people) have been historically underserved and underrepresented as part of the response to the HIV pandemic.

In recent years, organizations have become more aware of how ill-served the transgender population has been by the global HIV response. Changes are (slowly) being made to adequately serve trans communities and fund trans-led work. The list of resources below can help you get started with information and support for community building, health issues, safety from violence, legal barriers, and more.
