Transgender-Focused PrEP Demo Project - Case Management Approach

Demo Project
Principal Investigator(s)
Dr. Sheldon Morris

These researchers will test if a transgender-focused case management approach to contextualize PrEP within the needs of the whole person can improve PrEP linkage and engagement in the transgender population. The team will also examine possible drug interactions between PrEP use and feminizing hormones by using the daily reporting of doses taken by text messaging to confirm whether the same drug levels expected to be protective for HIV are achieved by transgender women on hormonal therapy, and if taking PrEP is associated with any changes in hormone levels.
