VI. Recommendations
To deepen this dialogue to jointly build the theme of sexual diversity and human rights.
deepen the implications of stigma and discrimination, Trans-Homo-Lesbo-Bi: phobic.
Increased involvement of institutions of both the state education ministry, Health (to know the reality of this population) and they are also sub-recipients of Global Fund.
Strengthening the Trans population in order to build strategic alliances.
other agencies that support these two networks in their national work.
strengthen the promoters of the REDTRANS and REDTRASEX.
Last considerations:
It is important to train them on issues of sexuality, homophobia, transphobia, stigma and discrimination and all forms of sexual expression because they lack a little knowledge of the subject in her work as promoters and the time devoted to these workshops is very little for them to internalize all this knowledge ..
