About ANZPATH

ANZPATH was formed by Australasian attendees at the 2009 World Professional Association for Transgender Health (previously known as the Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association)  conference in Oslo.

'Transgender’ as used in the name of this organisation is an umbrella term and incorporates many identities and human phenomena associated with sex and/or gender variance. It is not intended to express an opinion about the aetiology or diversity of sexual formation and/or gender expression. Neither does it intend to conflate these various experiences of living.

ANZPATH has the following aims :

  • To promote the subjects of the health, rights and well-being of trans, gender diverse, and non-binary people within professional training programs;
  • To serve as a forum for and promote communication and collaboration amongst professionals involved in the health, rights and well-being of trans, gender diverse, and non-binary people;
  • To encourage, promote and share research in the fields of the health, rights and well-being of trans, gender diverse, and non-binary people;
  • To develop best practices and supportive policies which promote the health, rights and well-being of trans, gender diverse, and non-binary people;
  • To establish a known network of professional service providers catering to the needs of trans, gender diverse, and non-binary people;
