Have you ever wondered why there are so few programs for transgender people in Maryland? It’s because transgender people are invisible — in health data, in representation on decision-making groups, and in community forums.
Let’s change that!
Please join us at a community forum. We will explore the causes of transgender invisibility in Maryland’s HIV surveillance data. We will discuss possible community-driven solutions to improve knowledge and understanding of how HIV affects transgender communities in Maryland.
