Peer Linkage and Re-engagement of Women of Color with HIV

In the San Francisco Bay Area (SFBA), trans women of color are disproportionately affected by HIV and have poor HIV care outcomes. The Brandy Martell Project and TransAccess were two demonstration projects aimed at increasing HIV care engagement and retention among trans women of color in the SFBA. Both projects took place in clinics with a long history of providing trans health care and social services. Both also relied on peer navigation to address systems barriers and promote HIV care linkage and engagement. This analysis was to identify associations between intervention exposure and primary HIV care visits, ART prescription, and retention in HIV care.
