Barriers to and Retention in Support Services among HIV+ Transwomen

The purpose of this study is to examine barriers to and retention in support services among HIV+ transwomen (women who were assigned a male sex at birth) and to explore the challenges and potential benefits of integrating HIV+ transwomen into services for HIV+ non-transgender women. This study will collect qualitative data with 14 HIV+ transwomen and 10 support services providers in Alameda County, CA. This study will provide preliminary data to inform an R01 application responding to an RFA to examine the test, treat and retain paradigm.
