HIV/AIDS Targeted Intervention Project with Transgenders

 
 

Organization : Society for Human And Organizational Development in Harmony (SHODH)

 
 

Location : Delhi

 
 

Project Description

The third sex as they are referred to, are often looked upon with much curiosity due to their non-confirmative nature, found stuck in a physical body which is alien to them. The transgender community in India and Delhi broadly includes the transvestites, cross dressers, hermaphrodites and hijras (eunuchs). TGs are highly vulnerable to HIV and are also a strategically important group for focusing HIV prevention programmes.  Although not all TGs have many sexual partners, there are sub groups that have many male partners and are high risk, since many of them engage in anal sex.

Shodh is implementing an HIV/AIDS education and prevention project with TGs in Central Delhi. This is funded by the Delhi State AIDS Control Society. The intervention provides a complete package of HIV preventions services for the TG community ranging from Behaviour Change Communication (BCC) messages addressing the high risk behaviour, counselling and treatment for Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), provision of free condoms and linkages to health facilities for HIV testing and HIV related care & support services.

Health Campus 

SHODH conducts regular multi-specialty health camps with the objective of providing basic check-ups and medicines in areas where regular health facilities are not easily accessible. These multi-specialty health camps provide healthcare services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized communities. Health camps typically include general health check ups, screening tests for blood sugar, blood pressure and health counseling. Other facilities are provided as per local needs and availability.
