We do not know how many trans people are living with HIV. Canada does not yet track this information. However, international research (Baral et al, 2013) says that trans women “are a very high burden population for HIV and are in urgent need of prevention, treatment and care services.”

The Canadian AIDS Society continues to work with the trans communities and other partners to develop resources to build capacity among community-based organizations and to encourage governments to address the information gaps where trans people are concerned.
