Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticleResearch

Abstract

We are now in the 21st century where HIV is a treatable chronic condition through the use of antiretroviral therapies (ARTs). Yet, HIV remains an issue for minority populations who have been disproportionately and adversely affected by HIV even in first world countries such as Australia. There is no good reason for this. While TGD people may have access to such therapies as ART, the problem is not access to treatment, but recognition that they actually exist. This paper discusses the erasure of TGD people in the Australian healthcare system in the discourse around HIV and concludes that their voices need to be heard.
