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 develop a meanginful and helpful intervention to help individuals with PREP re-engagement, re-initiation, and retention. we are looking for folks to give feedback and help us improve this intervention.
What does the study involve?
This study involves participation in two focus groups of 6-8 people. The focus group will discuss thoughts and ideas about an intervention we plan to use in a pilot study to help individuals with PrEP re-engagement, re-initation, and retention.
Who is eligible to participate?
- Aged 18 and older
- Assigned male at birth and identify as a woman/female or non-binary
