TG FRIENDLY

I deserve to take care of who I am.

Unmute Me provides confidential, reliable health services at sensitized clinics. These clinics consist of a network of experienced service providers who administer care without judgement, with empathy and with professionalism. Unmute Me was launched by Beyond Zero with the goal of working towards improved quality of life for all people living with HIV – no matter who you are.

In South Africa the rights of transgender people, including the right to access to healthcare, is legally protected. In spite of this, up to 1 in 4 transgender people have never been to a testing station for testing of any kind. The few who seek out healthcare services are met with stigma, discrimination, a lack of empathy, and at best misunderstanding.

Beyond Zero founded the Unmute Me campaign to address the need for culturally competent healthcare providers and administrators who can help end the health disparities faced by transgender people through providing welcoming, knowledgeable and equitable care to the transgender community.
