This chapter focuses on transgender Latina women, a population greatly impacted by HIV/AIDS. The first section provides an overview of how HIV has disproportionately affected transgender women, and examines specific factors that contribute to the spread of HIV in this unique population of Latinas. The second section provides a personal reflection on how capacity building in one community has led to the development of local, state, and national programs and services that address the pressing needs of transgender women in culturally responsive and affirming ways that serve as models for other transgender communities. This approach to the chapter was followed to emphasize that the problems faced by Latina transgender women that elevate their risk for HIV can be successfully addressed through capacity-building efforts that include the participation of transgender women in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of programs designed for them.
