Trans*, health and human rights
Trans people are seriously disadvantaged by not having accessible trans specific health care. As by not being able to access regular health care because of transphobia and discrimination. Vreerwerk keeps writing and talking about trans health and trans* people’s access to health care. Be it general health care or trans specific. With much discrimination – whether out of ignorance or willingly – trans people are disadvantaged.
Traditionally and unjustly, legal recognition issues and health trans(ition) related health care are strongly coupled.
We can show how to argue your case using human rights always is being forgotten or submitted to extraordinary requirements to be able to access health care, Vreerwerk offers lectures and workshops – live and on te web – in gaining a human rights background to patients’ rights, to getting your collective health rights.
Vreerwerk has experience in analysing the health rights situation for trans* and intersex people and can help people to advocate for their human rights with regard to good health care that does not discriminate. We are experienced in writing alternative health care standards and have been asked more than once to look at existing practices and advise on them.
We can show how to argue your case using human rights. Central questions here are:
- What do human rights say about health care?
- What is there on gender identity and expression in human rights?
- What is “good health care” from a human rights perspective?
- What systems and recommendations are there?
- What should be in the package and why?
- How to build local solutions?
