Different Needs But Equal Rights: Giving Voice to Transgender Communities through ASPIDH in El Salvador - Gender Strategies in Concentrated Epidemics Case Study Series

By Daniel C | 16 Dec, 2011

Although transgender individuals are a highly vulnerable segment of El Salvador's population, the national political climate has only recently begun to support HIV programming that is tailored to their needs. Additionally, limited access to medical services and legal protection and considerable societal stigma and discrimination means that organizations working with transgender individuals must meet a variety of complex and varied needs. This case study, one of 9 in a series, describes the challenges and successes of the Solidarity Association to Promote Human Development (ASPIDH), an NGO that promotes transgender rights via sensitization, education, and advocacy activities.
