Abstract

Experiencies of transphobic discrimination and victimization negatively impact on mental health, and the lack of social support has been found to be associated with a higher rate of undiagnosed HIV infection. To accurately assess the prevalence of HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases in the transgender population it is essential to create centres that can offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary and adequate support to these patients.
