Delivering High-Quality HIV Care to Cisgender and Transgender Women

In this issue:

Why do cisgender and transgender women, and particularly women of color, account for such a disproportionate percentage of HIV infections in the US? Why are so many so reluctant to accept PrEP? What can clinicians do to bridge this critical gap in essential HIV  services?

These are some of the questions Guest Author Dr. Kathleen McManus, from the Division of Infectious Diseases and International Health at the University of Virginia, discusses in this issue of eHIV Review.

Learning objectives:

  • Describe how the National Academy of Medicine’s comprehensive care quality domains can help clinicians deliver high quality care for cisgender and transgender women at risk for or living with HIV.
  • Discuss strategies clinicians can implement to improve HIV testing and PrEP uptake among cisgender and transgender women.
