NASTAD Issue Brief on ADAPs’ and Transgender Health Issues
September 9, 2016
The National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD) has released an new issue brief, Crossroads: ADAP Considerations for Transgender Health. The issue brief is designed to advance providers’ and ADAPs’ awareness of transgender health issues, high light public and private insurance considerations, and improve clinical outcomes. It focuses on three areas for ADAP staff and providers to consider in ensuring trans-inclusive care and treatment options: insurance purchasing and coverage; ADAP formulary navigation; and collection of sexual orientation and gender identity data.
