Open Access & Trans Health

Tax deductible
The Project:


Help trans people get better and safer access to medical care by making expert recommendations available to providers.
Recently, members of the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) task force of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) were successful in publishing their recommendations on the use of EMRs in the care of transgender and gender nonconforming people in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association. Currently the article is available to subscribers only; we need $2,500 to buy the distribution rights to the article so we can spread the word about the recommendations our committee members made.

The Impact


A team that includes some of the world's leading experts in trans medical care has published an article to better educate providers on how to incorporate electronic medical records (EMR) while treating trans patients. This article, when read and applied by providers, will help to transform the way trans people are treated in clinics across the country. Currently, individual providers each have to find the article on their own and then pay for it in order to read it, and most of the providers willing to do that work are already doing a great job with their trans patients. We need this article to reach a much wider audience, beyond those already familiar with trans health issues by making the article public and having the ability to send it for free to clinics and doctors nationwide. Your donation will help us reach the $2,500 we need to make that happen.

What We Need & What You Get


We need (at least!) $2,500 to pay the publisher to make the article public. If we can reach above that we'll be able to use those funds to further our reach and deepen our impact in creating better access to medical care for trans people. Additional funds that are raised will be applied to WPATH's Global Education Initiative to increase awareness about transgender health around the world.


You'll get the satisfaction of knowing that you're a pioneer in trans medical care and that you or someone you love will have safer, better, more competent services provided to them next time they see a doctor.


Your support, either through a donation or spreading the word (or both!), will make clinics across the country safer and more welcoming for everyone in our community. Thank you!
