Health Correlates of Criminal Justice Involvement in 4,793 Transgender Veterans (2015)

"These data suggest that TG veterans experience a number of health risks compared to non-TG veterans, including an increased likelihood of justice involvement. TG veterans involved with the criminal justice system are a particularly vulnerable group and services designed to address the health care needs of this population, both while incarcerated and when in the community, should take these ?ndings into account in the development of health screenings and treatment plans."
