Stepping Up: A Consensus Statement by Trans Leaders

A new community-created consensus statement offers concrete and measurable steps organizations can take to improve their approach to HIV-focused work in transgender communities. The statement, drafted by 12 transgender leaders at a think tank convened by AIDS United in December of 2016, offers critical guidance for clinical providers, funders, and social service organizations to strengthen their understanding of how best to engage and affirm transgender communities.

“This statement is a foundational tool that every provider and HIV advocate can use,” said AIDS United President & CEO Jesse Milan Jr. “We cannot allow transgender people to be left out or left behind or we will not fully achieve our national goals.”
