Abstract

Transgender persons illuminate the complex interplay of social and biological factors that determine gender identity (an individual's own sense of maleness or femaleness) and contribute to both HIV risk and HIV health. This article highlights some of the unique challenges that transgender persons face in maintaining their health--including avoiding HIV infection or living well with HIV--and discusses ways in which health-care providers can better equip themselves to provide care that meets the needs of transgender clients.
