CALL FOR PAPERS
Health & Health Care in Gender Diverse Communities Call for Papers
he approach to health care for trans and gender diverse individuals is evolving in response to expanding knowledge of the needs in these communities, as well as a growing understanding of the wide-ranging impacts of health inequity. However, current empirical research in this area has focused on sexual health and gender affirming care in geographically limited populations, and transmasculine and nonbinary communities are underrepresented in research on this topic.
In this Call for Papers, we are inviting submissions addressing the health status and health care needs of trans and gender diverse individuals worldwide, throughout their lifespans. In this collection we aim to highlight emerging clinical, psychological, epidemiological, sociological, and public health research, and submissions reporting research on health policies that affect these communities are also encouraged. We particularly welcome research reporting analyses of multi-site, longitudinal, and/or national population-based datasets, research from geographically underrepresented areas, as well as research with an explicit community engagement focus.
