Transgender, non-binary, and gender-expansive communities face unique challenges in healthcare settings and in obtaining health services. Within LGBTQ healthcare, it is necessary to recognize these barriers and work towards combating them.
Each year, we see an increasing amount of healthcare facilities taking steps towards trans-inclusive care by creating comprehensive programs for transgender, non-binary, and gender-expansive communities. This interactive map details where clinical care programs can be found specifically for gender-expansive children and adolescents.
For more information about best practices for clinics and hospitals that seek to promote the health and well-being of transgender and non-binary youth through the creation of multidisciplinary care clinics see the publication, Comprehensive Care Clinics for Transgender & Non-Binary Youth from the HRC Foundation.
