Trans & Gender-Affirming Care in I/T/U Facilities Strategic Vision and Action Plan

Apr 29, 2021 | Julia Zigman

Last year, with support from the Indian Health Service and the Minority HIV/AIDS Fund, the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board (NIHB) and the Native Advocacy Workgroup for Trans Health collaborated to develop a Trans & Gender-Affirming Care in I/T/U Facilities Strategic Vision and Action Plan. That plan is now published and openly available. The plan includes information designed to ensure clinical environments serving Indigenous people are affirming for all clients, especially those who identify as trans or gender-diverse. It also includes sample policies and strategies to help clinical environments affirm all clients and patients. Later this year, NIHB will release a toolkit to support the implementation of this action plan.

Access the plan here.
