Re-engagement, Re-initiation, & Retention in PrEP Care in Transgender Women
Transgender women and non-binary individuals assigned male at birth are disproportionately affected by HIV infection in the United States. While HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) shows great promise for reducing HIV incidence within this population, stigma, competing priorities, avoidance of healthcare due to past negative experiences, prioritization of gender-related healthcare, and concerns about PrEP interactions with hormone therapy pose significant barriers to PrEP care retention among transgender women and non-binary individuals assigned male at birth.
The R-cubed research study seeks to better describe barriers to persistent PrEP use among transgender women and non-binary individuals assigned male at birth.
What does the study involve?
This study involves an in-depth interview with a study coordinator to discuss healthcare, PrEP, and barriers to access.
Who is eligible to participate?
- Aged 18 and older
