Gay and bisexual men/MSM and transgender women experience health disparities in addition to HIV. Barriers to accessing care, such as a lack of clinically competent and affirming care, can exacerbate disparities in disease burden, risk behaviors, and treatment outcomes. This clinical skills-building session will focus on the medical and behavioral health care needs of sexual and gender minority patients, as well as the need for clinical program integration—the integration of clinical services alongside behavioral and social services. Leaders in providing care to these populations from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the U.S. will describe best practices on how to provide comprehensive care to transgender women and MSM to address their health care needs holistically and reduce disparities. Such care provides an important context for HIV prevention and treatment with MSM and transgender women.
