Personalized Cognitive Counseling: Adaptation for Working with Trans Women Guide CoverThe PCC trans adaptation guide was based on expertise from the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health and the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies, at the University of California, San Francisco. The adapted questionnaire was field tested by four CDC-funded CBOs with local trans women. This adaptation is specifically for use with trans women who have sex with men. Implementation with any other trans population will require additional adaptation and/or technical assistance.

The Center of Excellence for Transgender Health and the Center for AIDS Prevention Studies are funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide capacity-building assistance for community-based organizations and transgender community mobilization.
