The TransR project suggests concerted actions that focus on TSW but also on the circumstances and key-actors that prevent TSW from improving their physical and psychological health. Hence, this project aims to:

• Increase informed and effective interventions for TSW;
• Favour a more respectful environment for trans people in general and TSW in particular;
• Improve TSW access to healthcare, legal and social support;
• Encourage TSW empowerment and participation;
• Improve skills among professionals and stakeholders who play a crucial role in TSW lives;
