Malta to offer specialised healthcare services for transgender people

A consultation document was launched on Friday aimed at providing specialized healthcare for transgender people.

Health Minister Chris Fearne was quick to point out that while transgender people suffer the same ailments as anybody else, additional specific needs do arise such as hormone therapy and gender affirmation care.

Fearne said that the health department is keen to provide specialized training to Malta’s doctors so that they may provide the best care for their transgender patients.
