How do we work to ensure the right to accessible trans specific health care?
EuroPride House, fre 3 aug 13:00–13:45
In 2017 Transgender Europe released the report “Over diagnosed but underserved. Trans Healthcare in Georgia, Poland, Serbia, Spain, and Sweden: Trans Health Survey”. The report provided a deeper understanding of the healthcare situation of trans people in Europe and was based on a survey in five countries; Georgia, Poland, Serbia, Spain, and Sweden. Mina Tolu from Transgender Europe will discuss some of the findings of the report. There will be a discussion with Emelie Mire Åsell, who will focus on the Swedish situation regarding access to gender affirming health care, and Erica Anderson, who will give examples from the US contexts where trans rights are increasingly under attack. Annika Strandhäll, minister in charge of health care, will give her view on how access and quality of health care can be improved.
Participants: Annika Strandhäll, Minister for Social Affairs, Sweden; Erica Anderson, trans activist and psychologist, US; Emelie Mire Åsell, spokesperson for trans rights, RFSL, Sweden; Mina Tolu, Transgender Europe, Malta/Germany.
