Journal Article
Transgender women (TW) experience significant inequities in health care access and health disparities compared to cisgender populations.

Journal Article
In this essay, authors highlight the importance of democratizing data for NHPIs — diverse populations that historically have had little access to their data — in the context of achieving equity in health and the social drivers of health. Authors provide a framework for evaluating community accessibility of data, which includes concepts of data availability, salience, cost, and report back.
