Transgender health guidelines: Covering the gap in knowledge among healthcare providers around transgender health
Beirut, May 10th 2017: With the support of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), the Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health (LebMASH) brought closer to the Arab speaking world the Standards of Care (SOC) for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals.
LebMASH took the initiative to translate these international health guidelines on transgender health to Arabic in order to make them accessible for both healthcare providers and transgender individuals. LebMASH believes that this translation will play an important role in starting the conversation around providing gender-affirming care to transgender individuals in Lebanon.
