In many cases, HIV programming collapses transgender people under the umbrella category of men who have sex with men without taking into consideration the particular needs of transgender people. Yet, surveys of transgender populations in Thailand report extremely high HIV prevalence and very limited access to HIV prevention. Sisters, a transgender-focused, community-based organization in Thailand, helps to fill this gap. Sisters' approach helps transgender people in Pattaya, Thailand access the health system, providing a safe place for health education, prevention services, and overall support.
