What’s the T with PrEP, the Stay Study, and the trans and gender non-conforming community?
This study is one of the first to focus exclusively on providing PrEP to the trans and gender non-conforming community. Trans and gender non-conforming people face many factors that affect their risk for HIV infection. We know this because the San Francisco Department of Public Health has been conducting research and delivering services to trans people for more than two decades.
The goal of this study is to offer the most recent advancement in HIV prevention—Pre-exposure Prophylaxis or PrEP—to trans and gender non-conforming people in the Bay Area.
This study is a partnership between four clinics that are leaders in providing trans-specific health care in the Bay Area and researchers at the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The Stay Study is funded by the California HIV/AIDS Research Program (CHRP).
