New Issue Brief on Enhancing Access to Gender-affirming Care
PolicyLab just released an issue brief in which our experts outline findings from recent research conducted by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia that highlights perspectives from youth and their caregivers on the lifesaving aspect of gender-affirming care. Additionally, the brief offers recommendations to policymakers, payers and other stakeholders to ensure that gender-affirming care is accessible and affordable.
This guidance, grounded in our work with transgender and gender-diverse youth and their families in clinical practice, can support youth in their identities, work to reduce stigma and discrimination, and help this important population transition into healthy, productive adults—an important goal of our Adolescent Health and Well-being Portfolio.
