Networking zone

What about the health of trans women in Latin America and the Caribbean? Challenges to HIV diagnoses and lack of comprehensive health care

Room
Networking Zones Channel
Session Description
This networking zone will present the "Guide to recommendations on comprehensive health care for Trans women in Latin America and the Caribbean," a trigger to work on strategies to improve high-quality access to health services as well as treatments for HIV. In many key populations the response to HIV is an unfinished topic where we must work intersectionally. Discrimination, stigma and exclusion of the trans population, as well as the violation of autonomy, are common practices in public and private health services. We must work against these so that access to quality comprehensive health is reflected in treatment, prevention, care, support, adherence and advice, as the lack of legal recognition of trans identities in Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the main reasons why this population has denied or violated access to the human right to health.
