Jimmie Manning, Charee Mooney Thompson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Research has documented the disheartening severity and variety of health disparities experienced by people who identify as transgender. These disparities include decreased physical and mental health, enduring problems with patient acceptance or even safety and difficulties with access to medical treatment and care. Although these disparities continue to receive attention, many treatments for transgender people have led to considerable controversy. This entry addresses common medical procedures and therapies sought by transgender people, threats to the mental health and safety of transgender people, social and structural barriers to transgender health care access, and some common controversies related to transgender care.
