Black Trans Adults Less Likely to Receive Partner Services

Black Trans Adults Less Likely to Receive Partner Services

The study authors’ findings were consistent with past research that suggested that trans women, especially Black trans women, are disproportionately affected by HIV. Transgender women were more likely to be engaged in partner services than non-binary individuals, but racial and geographic gaps persisted. Black transgender adults were less likely to receive partner services (58% versus 74%) than their white counterparts. This is striking, considering that previous research showed that Black cisgender adults overall are more likely to engage receive and/or accept partner services than white cisgender people. The data also showed that people in the Midwest were 24% less likely to receive partner services than their peers in the Northeast.
