Recent reports have heralded increases in philanthropic funding for trans populations; for example, due to a new grants-level analysis, FCAA's annual resource tracking project reported a more than $3 million increase in HIV-related funding for trans populations. Related, multiple funding organizations - ViiV Healthcare, Arcus Foundation, Third Wave Fund - have announced new priorities, portfolios, or funds focused on addressing the needs of trans populations.

What is behind these trends? What gaps still remain? Join us to engage in facilitated conversations between private funders, advocates, and key experts on where the philanthropic sector should focus when it comes to HIV and trans populations.
