Organizer IRGT: A Global Network of Transgender Women

Organizer of TRANS Action: Building Bridges to Safety

The Innovative Response Globally for Trans Women and HIV/AIDS (IRGT) was originally convened in 2011 by transgender leaders and their allies out of the need for specific input on global HIV/AIDS issues affecting trans communities. Since its inception, the IRGT has worked largely around the International AIDS Conference and Trans participation therein, as well as developing strategies regarding other political opportunities.  IRGT has consistently engaged in networking and planning to determine the best course of action towards advancing Trans global issues. Composed of members from diverse parts of the world, the IRTG initiates and promotes advocacy on Trans health and human rights as they relate to HIV/AIDS.
