Transgender awareness week starts on November 13, and we want to kick things off in the best way we can – with meaningful awareness and tangible change.

DHB services available across the country

This year we sent Official Information Act (OIA) requests to all DHBs. We asked whether they provide specific gender-affirming healthcare currently, whether they use the national guidelines, and whether they provide or promote training and if so who carries this out.

You can see the results of our OIA requests here.

Transgender sensitivity training for healthcare workers

We’re proud to say that so far in 2021 we have delivered transgender sensitivity training to over 1,000 people. Around 500 of those people are healthcare workers, with around half of them being mental health and addictions workers.

If you’re an ally and you’d like to help us carry out this important mahi, please consider making a donation. We appreciate your support.
