Session Description:

This session is co-organised by Redlactrans and IRGT – A Global Network of Transwomen and HIV.

This session will present the "Guide to Recommendations on comprehensive healthcare 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. HIV. Considering that in key populations the response to HIV is an unfinished topic andwhere 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: against which we must work 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.
