Providing Gender Health Resources for Australians to support Trans and Gender Diverse individuals to live a Life Without Barriers.
The Trans Medical Research group based at The University of Melbourne supports people to live a life without barriers.
We provide strategic leadership in transgender health to achieve health equity and well-being:
• through medical research to find best treatments
• by developing a greater understanding of trans health issues
• educating medical professionals to improve access to healthcare
• improving clinical services and advocacy to decrease stigma for all transgender and gender diverse individuals.
An Australian community that understands and respects gender diversity.
This will ensure Australian transgender individuals, who currently have over 10 times the population rate of depression and suicidality, and where 1 in 5 have been refused healthcare by a medical professional, all enjoy health equity.
All Transgender individuals have access to the information and services they need to ensure optimal mental and physical health, and well-being, to live a life without barriers.
