Breaking down healthcare barriers for trans people

Dr. Marci Bowers, a U.S.-based medical pioneer in gender affirmation surgery, joins our host, journalist Brian Mastroianni, in a conversation about how we can break down entrenched structural barriers and persistent stigma that transgender and gender diverse people face in healthcare globally. Dr. Bowers, the president of the Executive Committee and Board of Directors of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) explains how we can improve education for more inclusive health settings and describes the challenges providers face in a global climate where transphobic stigma persists from medical institutions to the halls of political power.
