Evidence to Improve Care

Gender-affirming health care refers to a combination of interventions designed to support transgender and nonbinary people, including delivering and addressing their primary health care needs. Trans and nonbinary people have an elevated risk for certain health conditions. They are also more likely to encounter inequities and discriminatory practices when accessing health care, adversely impacting their experience as patients.
