Dr. Kenneth Mayer discusses the biology, behaviors, social network structures, and societal structures that influence the risk factors for HIV transmission. Using this framework, Dr. Mayer explains how gender minority people are at higher risk for HIV transmission, particularly if they have intersecting marginalized identities. Dr. Mayer describes many ways in which providers can increase access to HIV treatment strategies for gender diverse people, including clinical strategies, online tools, and social tools. Dr. Mayer focuses on not having a “one size fits all” strategy, but rather understanding the needs of a particular patient and creating a treatment strategy specific to that person.
