Trans Health

Global Perspectives on Care for Trans Communities

Although social scientists and practitioners have shown an increased interest in the inclusion of trans persons in recent years, the current position of this group in the (medical/psychological/nursing) care system remains under-researched. Studies tend to merge the issues of gender diversity and sexual diversity, rendering the lived experiences of trans persons invisible. In addition, trans people often face a discriminatory environment in which they are pathologized and stigmatized as mentally ill.

This anthology addresses trans people's access to healthcare from a transnational perspective, and offers courses of action to improve nursing, medical, therapeutic, and social care for trans persons. Most contributions of this book are written from a lived trans experience.
