AbstractTransgender communities of color face inequities in HIV prevalence, uptake of prevention interventions, and engagement in care and treatment. Intersecting oppression, i.e., racism, cissexism, transphobia, and HIV stigma, increases HIV vulnerability and reduces access to prevention and care services. Healthcare providers can facilitate care engagement by increasing their knowledge of transgender-specific healthcare issues and implementing gender-affirming care practices.
