ST ANN, Jamaica — Representatives of transgender groups across the Caribbean region gathered in St Ann, Jamaica for a three-day meeting that took place from January 8 – 10, 2018. The meeting was attended by 20 representatives from 11 countries.

The meeting, which was hosted by Caribbean Vulnerable Communities Coalition (CVC) in collaboration with IRGT (a global network of trans women and HIV), sought to support the establishment of a Caribbean regional trans network. The network will serve to champion the human rights and healthcare needs of transgender persons as well as to provide support in leadership, governance and strategic guidance to the local transgender movements in the region, including those in Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, Cuba, Suriname, Dominican Republic, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and Haiti.
