WHO Culture and Health webinar//Transgender experiences: Culture,classification and care
Date: Tuesday 7 May 2019
Time: 13.00-14.00 GMT+1, 14.00-15.00 CEST
Info: In 2019, WHO will be removing ‘gender incongruence’ from the mental health chapter of the WHO International Classification of Disease (ICD). This action may have implications for the lived experience of transgender individuals, particularly those seeking the support of services, but these lack thorough examination. Featuring a range of speakers from academia, policy-making, health services, and activist organizations, the webinar will explore the implications of this change for the support available for individuals undergoing gender identity transition, taking into consideration differences across time and cultural contexts.
The webinar will be live streamed at www.euro.who.int/en/cultureandhealth
