Guaranteeing access to fundamental rights for transgender and non-binary people is a collective social duty. As a socially vulnerable group, the provision of quality and equitable health care is a form of social validation that reinforces the right to be and exist of these people.

Discuss these policies and equip health professionals applying them in their work is a timid but essential step in building a more just and equitable society for transgender and non-binary people. In this episode, community physician and editor of the PEBMED portal, Marcelo Gobbo, comments on some of these obstacles in order to present public policy and its limits from the point of view of health professionals.
