The SA HIV Clinician Society is very pleased to announce a gender affirming healthcare online training for clinicians and allies. Aligned with the guideline published in October 2021. Focusing on a bio-psycho-social approach to the transgender and gender diverse person presenting to your facility, it fulfils a much needed knowledge gap.
Gender-affirming healthcare (GAHC) online training course
ABOUT THE COURSE
The course is completely open access and with no charge, the aim being to empower as many people as possible in understanding the provision of good quality, equitable GAHC in the South African setting.
The course is aimed at anyone wanting to understand more about GAHC, whether that be a health care provider, a transgender or gender diverse (TGD) client or anyone else.
The course consists of 11 modules, presented in video format. These presentations are given by experts in the field of GAHC, many of whom are TGD themselves, therefore bringing both personal and professional insights to the course content.
