Today is National Transgender HIV Testing Day.
.
.
While limited #HIV studies have focused on transgender women, and there are significant gaps in research on HIV in transgender men, the available data indicates that the transgender community is heavily impacted by the AIDS epidemic, when compared to other groups in America and around the world.
.
.
In the past decade, the global health community has progressed from almost no mention of transgender health and rights—to 40% of countries including transgender people in their national HIV strategies. However, far more needs to be done to address the unique needs of transgender men, transgender women and all non-binary individuals.
.
.
Nearly 27% of transgender people in the United States report being refused health care. If you are transgender, you can find HIV testing, education and prevention services at UCSF’s Center of Excellence for Transgender Health via the link in our bio.

#OnThisDate in 1987: Coty Award-winning fashion and costume designer #WilliSmith dies of pneumonia complicated by shigella and #AIDS at age 39.
.
.
Smith’s label, WilliWear, made him one of the most successful African-American designers in fashion. His eclectic taste in side projects ran the gamut—from designing Mary Jane Watson’s wedding dress in “The Amazing Spiderman” comic books—to designing costumes for Spike Lee’s “School Daze.”
.
.
Smith, who was openly gay, was said to be unaware of his #HIV/AIDS status until hospitalized for the illnesses that eventually ended his life.

Today is National Youth HIV & AIDS Awareness Day.
.
.
In the United States, 1 in 5 new #HIV diagnoses occurs in a young person aged 13-24, according to @cdcgov. Getting tested for HIV is an important step toward prevention. However, only 9% of U.S. high school students have ever been tested for HIV.
.
.
Be the generation to end #AIDS. Resolve today to get tested and know your status. Find free testing via the link in bio.

On this date in 1990: teenage #AIDS activist #RyanWhite dies of AIDS-related illness at age 18. White, a hemophiliac who acquired #HIV through a blood transfusion, became the public face of the fight against AIDS and its related #stigma after he was ostracized from his school and his community for having AIDS. White’s fight to attend school became a flashpoint in the national conversation around the disease, and White spoke frequently about his experiences, testifying before Congress and appearing on multiple national talk shows. White’s legacy lives on today through The Ryan White CARE Act, passed shortly after his death, which is the largest federally funded program specifically for people living with HIV/AIDS.

Our TREAT Asia program includes a network of adult & pediatric clinical sites as well as orphan support programs in countries in the Asia-Pacific region. TREAT Asia partner @thairedcross shares artwork of youth living with #HIV, including these pieces, by Kratai ❤️
.
.
In describing her artwork that reflects her earlier years, the 21-year-old says, “Life in the past has been rather grey, with few friends, and only family members living with me.”
.
.
Swipe to see her piece that reflects the present. Kratai says, “My healed heart has become who I am, the problems in my life have become smaller and more controllable. I don’t harm myself any longer.”

The global #HIV response needs to further address the needs of transgender people.
.
.
More research is necessary.
More funding is necessary.
Easier access to healthcare is necessary.
.
.
Today is Transgender Day of Visibility. We cannot end #AIDS until we end the invisibility of the transgender community from international HIV strategies, clinical trials, cure studies and AIDS leadership around the world.
