The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday released a report that determined 4 in 10 transgender women in seven major U.S. cities have HIV, which the agency said signaled a need to focus HIV prevention and treatment among the demographic.
The study conducted in 2019 and early 2020 found that 42 percent of 1,608 transgender women across Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle with a valid test result had HIV.
The study determined that 32 percent of respondents without HIV used pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a treatment for those at risk of HIV infection through sex or injection drug use. A total of 34 percent of participants said they had been involved in sex work.
The CDC cited previous studies that concluded that many transgender women may not use PrEP for different reasons, including medical mistrust, lack of transgender-inclusive marketing and worries about how it will interact with hormones. Sixty-seven percent of transgender women in the CDC survey reported taking hormones for their gender affirmation.
Hmm..., HIV positive men pretending to be women? What could possibly go wrong?
Ever notice how the more empowered these groups are by the left, the more indestructible they act?
If the CDC is claiming a 40% infection rate in transgenders the rate has to be much greater than is being reported,
Where the famous Dr. Fauci on this now?
Meanwhile the Progressive Marxist/DSA Democrat Leftists continue to push Transgenderism on our young... What's wrong with this picture?
