THE CAUSE - TRANS-HEALTH
(1) Trans-persons face widespread discrimination at healthcare institutions
(2) There are significant lapses in knowledge of trans-specific health issues among healthcare workers
(3) Trans-persons who live off of daily wages/beggary face huge opportunity costs to access care
Our Transgender project has been instituted to help Transgender individuals in Bangalore who need support navigating hurdles in accessing healthcare, nourishment and livelihoods, especially during Pride month annually.
