Transgender Healthcare

As awareness of transgender people grows among health care educators, researchers, policymakers, and clinicians of all types, the need to create more inclusive settings also grows.  Greater sensitivity and relevant information and services are required in dealing with transgender men and women.  These individuals need their identities to be recognized as authentic, they need better access to health care resources, and they need education and prevention material appropriate to their experience.  In addition, a need exists for activities designed to enhance understanding of transgender health issues and to spur innovation.1
