Project Details

Transmission risk of HIV and sexually transmissible infections (STI) has not been estimated in Australia among gender diverse populations. Only recently has there been a shift to improve the completion of gender identity and sexuality when collecting associated sexual risk behaviour locally, and other HIV and STI surveillance data. This project will involve a systematic review of existing literature to find other estimates of HIV and STI prevalence, and the methods used to derive these. Understanding how the data has been used and interpreted, in other similar settings will be important when developing and measuring our own indicators for disease risk among transgendered people.
