The GenderAid is a decision aid for genital gender surgery. Here, in addition to supplying reliable and applicable information, safeguarding the interests of the individual is regarded as a priority. The GenderAid has been developed for, and by, the transgender population.
The GenderAid can be divided into two websites; treatment options for the feminizing (demasculinizing) genital surgery, or treatment options for masculinizing (defeminizing) genital surgery.
This means that the GenderAid has been developed for trans men, trans women, but also for anyone else who wants to learn more about genital gender surgery.
Whether you yourself identify as transgender, AFAB, AMAB, non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer, or still figuring things out, as well as family or friends, everyone is welcome here!
The goal of the GenderAid is to provide a complete overview of the treatment options within the genital gender care trajectory all in one place.
For the past 5 years, we have been engaging with members of the transgender community to identify the needs of the population. We then incorporated the feedback as completely as possible into the GenderAid.
The GenderAid focuses on the Dutch health care system, where the care adheres to the guidelines established by the WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health). The GenderAid covers genital gender care nationwide.
The GenderAid is NOT affiliated with one specific care center. All medical information adheres to the quality and care requirements of the WPATH, but was collected directly from the community.
We feel it is tremendously important to work together to ensure that the GenderAid remains current. The website will continuously be updated based on developments within the social and medical world of genital gender surgery. We hope to be able to maintain this together with you!
