Opening up spaces for transgender communities in India


This is the first in a series of rapid case studies examining ‘person-centred’ aspects of community-led HIV prevention, treatment and care programmes in different contexts.

Person-centred approaches are founded on principles such as empowering and informing beneficiaries to enable them to participate in joint decision making; tailoring services to suit their context; respecting their preferences; and adapting and linking services to ensure that all their needs (physical, emotional and psychological) are met over their life course.

The case studies provide practical examples of what person-centred HIV programmes look like, and promote learning from the experiences and perspectives of the beneficiaries of these programmes.
