Trans healt and human rightsDecember 2013, 36 pages

This discussion paper aims to increase understanding of the human rights issues that trans people face, and the priority actions required to secure trans people’s right to dignity, equality, health and security. It focuses predominantly on the rights to health, to legal gender recognition and to freedom from violence and discrimination. Trans people have consistently identifi ed these rights as key priorities. Traversing these issues is essential to addressing the underlying structural factors that marginalize trans people, negatively impact their health and exclude them from the benefi ts of development.

This paper was written for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to inform its work, and that of other UN agencies, including with local trans communities. It draws on the experiences of trans people around the world, and suggests practical actions that UN staff can take to be more inclusive of trans people, both in daily interactions and in their broader work, particularly in the areas of health, HIV, the rule of law and development.
