Healthline is deeply committed to providing trusted health and wellness content that educates and empowers more than 85 million people per month to live their strongest, healthiest lives.
We believe health is a human right, and it's vital that we recognize and understand our audience’s unique perspectives and needs so that we can provide the most meaningful health content for everyone.
This transgender resource center is a reflection of those values. We worked hard to create empathetic and research-based content written and medically reviewed by members of the community. We covered a range of topics but made sure to address areas that are important to the transgender community. As with all Healthline resource pages, we plan to continually grow and revise this content.
