Suggestions for a non north American coauthor – transgender, HIV

Dear SAN Colleagues,


A colleague sent me the following request which I co=
uld not help with (I do not know the individual or his work) so I thought I=
would tap the SAN collective knowledge/network bank.  Please let me k=
now if you have thoughts on her request
whether in regard to the person she mentions or know of other potential fo=
lks who would be perfect for this project. Thanks! – CF



I’m writing to see if you could help make e-introduc=
tions between Adnan Khan and me.  I was asked to lead a paper on trans=
gender issues for an upcoming Lancet series on HIV and sex work.  Ther=
e are about 4 confirmed co-authors right now,
but we are heavily weighted with North Americans.  I’m looking for a =
co-author from South Asia who is knowledgeable about and sensitive to trans=
issues as well as knowledgeable about HIV.  Adnan Khan was recommende=
d, but I don’t know much about him.  A quick
search showed that he has published one paper on hijras and HIV. 
Do you know more about him and his appropriateness for his project?
