Event Details

World Aids Day Panel

Globally, there are an estimated 36.7 million people living with HIV and more than 35 million people have died of AIDS. The best available evidence suggests that, globally, transgender women are at massively increased risk of contracting HIV but data is scarce for other trans groups and there is an epidemiological and research vacuum about the impact of HIV among trans and non-binary groups within the UK.

This event will bring together a panel of experts working with trans and non-binary people to discuss how we can make HIV and sexual health research inclusive to gather the evidence needed to prevent HIV within trans communities and support and empower those affected.

This will be followed by a screening of the new video: Stand Up and Be Counted! The Expert Advisory Group on Trans Research.
