American Cohort to Study HIV Acquisition among Transgender Women in High Risk Areas

Baltimore, MD, United States


Summary

The American Cohort study proposes to establish multi-site, longitudinal cohort of transgender women in the eastern and southern U.S. (Boston, New York City, Baltimore-Washington, Atlanta, and Miami metropolitan areas) to characterize sociobehavioral risk factors for HIV acquisition, access to biobehavioral HIV prevention methods, and linkage to care for those who HIV seroconvert. Study findings will provide vital epidemiologic parameters for future HIV prevention and care research among transgender women, offer a platform upon which other research questions can be explored, and inform the development and testing of evidence-based and acceptable HIV prevention interventions for this population
