The transgender community is a distinct population, with its unique health care needs, wishes and preferences. This calls for an enhanced focus on transgender health issues, as an integral part of the health care system, and also through specialized multidisciplinary centers of excellence. The authors call for sensitization of the health care profession, and request for sensitivity while managing transgender and gender diverse individuals. If this is accomplished, transgender health issues will become normalized as part of the wider spectrum of health care, just as being a transgender person is normal.
