The Trans Wellness Initiative aims to improve the health and wellness of trans and nonbinary communities in Alberta by building connections, facilitating access, and fostering capacity.
The website is a place for trans folks to get information and resources about health topics that matter to them – whether about gender affirming gear, sexual health, or navigating surgical pathways.
It is also a place where healthcare providers can find guidance and education in providing competent care for trans and nonbinary communities.
The Trans Wellness Initiative Website provides access to:
- Community education and system navigation resources,
- Healthcare provider education, and continuing professional development opportunities,
- Connections between community members and inclusive, knowledgeable providers and services
