Transgender Education for Affirmative and Competent HIV and Healthcare (TEACHH) 

The TEACHH intervention is a workshop for healthcare providers focused on increasing their gender-affrming HIV care competency and reducing HIV and trans stigma, factors that impact trans women’s access to HIV prevention, treatment and support. We used two structured processes of intervention adaptation and development (Card’s 7 Steps, ADAPT-ITT model) and proposed a theoretically informed intervention drawing on the Information-Motivation-Behavioural Skills model. This brief intervention showed promise in improving gender-affirming provider knowledge, perceived competency, and attitudes/biases, particularly among those with less trans and HIV experience.
