At the Amsterdam WPATH conference, June 2016, medical review The Lancet launched a series (in one issue) completely around transgender health issues. The articles have been written by expert activists and professionals (which can of course coincide). The series is clearly written form a depathologizing perspective. They treat different features important for trans health globally.
Who we are?
Principle 17 is a collective of activists from the Netherlands, that promotes customized trans* health care. Health care if you need it, when you need it, as you need. We call ourselves to Yogyakarta Principle 17.
In Principle 17's flyer "Patients' rights are human rights are trans* rights" you can read all about your rights as a health care taker.
Download the brochure here. (Dutch only for now.)
