Gender-affirming healthcare training course

Gender-affirming healthcare (GAHC) online training course

The course is completely open access and with no charge, the aim being to empower as many people as possible in understanding the provision of good quality, equitable GAHC in the South African setting.

The course consists of 11 modules, presented in video format.
