Houston EMA HIV Care Continuum by Current Gender, 2017
- Transgender women living with HIV in the Houston EMA in 2017 had the highest proportion of individuals with met need and retention in care. However, they had the lowest proportion of viral suppression.
- Transgender men living with HIV in the Houston EMA in 2017 had the lowest proportion of individuals retained in care but had the highest viral suppression. Caution should be exercised in interpretation, however, due to the very small numbers of transgender men represented in this data.
- The proportion of newly diagnosed people linked to care within the first month after diagnosis was higher for transgender people compared to cisgender people. However, the transgender groups had few individuals and percentages can vary widely with small increases/decreases.
