What We Do

In May of 2012, the Miami-Dade HIV/AIDS Partnership (the Partnership) authorized the Prevention Committee to establish a workgroup for up to one year that will report to the Prevention Committee, to identify the transgender community’s needs and related issues.

Upon the workgroup’s first year commencement, the Partnership extended the term of the Transgender Workgroup for an additional year in order to monitor utilization of the existing drop-in center and identify needs for additional transgender resources.
