Getting to Wellness: A Roadmap for Improving the Health of Transgender Individuals in Los Angeles County

In response to HIV prevention priorities conveyed by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health’s Division of HIV and STD Programs (DHSP), the UCLA Center for HIV Identification, Prevention and Treatment Services (CHIPTS) recently convened an independent time-limited consortium to identify best practices and potential models to address the health and wellness needs of transgender people in Los Angeles County.

Building upon foundational work previously conducted by others in the transgender and service provider communities, the CHIPTS Transgender Consortium developed a report that outlines the status of transgender health and wellness, particularly with respect to HIV disease; provides an overview of some of the services available to transgender people in Los Angeles County; and describes opportunities to both strengthen and transform Los Angeles County’s response to the health and wellness needs of transgender people.
