SFAF.org Podcast #50 - Transgender MSM at greater risk for HIV

In this episode, a discussion with Dr. Jae Sevelius, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the UCSF Center for AIDS Prevention Studies. Dr. Sevelius recently completed a study on transgender men who have sex with men which sheds light on high-risk behaviors in a community that is difficult to reach. We'll talk about why we may see a rise in HIV prevalence among these men in the near future and what can be done to prevent it. For additional information, read the San Francisco AIDS Foundation’s HIV Evidence Report on factors that contribute to disproportionate HIV prevalence in the transgender population.

I really like this podcast and that it points out that the problem is really larger in scale than current numbers show.
