New York: Jamaica Center Will Use Grant to Fight HIV in the Transgender Community
October 30, 2012
Even though HIV/AIDS rates have been on the decline, transgender women of color are still at a high risk of contracting the disease. However, one Jamaica, NY, health clinic, the Queens Health Center, is part of a network of clinics that have been given $1.5 million over the next five years to reduce some of the exposure and provide care and evaluation services to the transgender population. The network, Community Healthcare Network, a New York City-based organization, was one of nine in the country to receive the grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration.
