Feds to track “transgender women of color” in NYC
| The National Institutes of Health is spending over $600,000 to use GPS tracking on transgender women of color in New York City.
According to the grant for the project, which is being conducted by New York University:
“This project seeks to use real-time geospatial methods to investigate relationships between social cohesion and social capital within Global Positioning System (GPS)-defined activity space neighborhoods and social networks in relation to HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) uptake and adherence cross-sectionally and longitudinally among transgender women (TW) of color (TWOC).”
Study subjects must be willing to “carry a small GPS device.”
