It gives me great pleasure to announce our 3rd International conference on Transgender Healthcare- IPATHCON 2022 in association with Jamia Hamdard University scheduled for 28th and 29th October 2022 at The Convention Centre, Jamia Hamdard University, New Delhi. The theme of the conference is “Building foundations for the delivery of holistic Transgender Healthcare in the Indian Subcontinent”.
We have indeed come a long way from our first international conference IPATHCON 2019 when we had for the first time put the community, the professionals working in the field of Transgender Healthcare, and the bureaucrats on the same platform to interact and address the felt needs of Transgender and Gender Diverse individuals in India. Having identified the issues, we went on to formulate the "Indian Standards of Care ISOC-1" which was released during IPATHCON 2020. Putting forward the public health approach for delivery of Transgender Healthcare we continued to work closely with the National Aids Control Organisation (NACO) and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoH&FW), pushing for getting a Centre of Excellence for Transgender Healthcare at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi (AIIMS, New Delhi), and pressing for changes in the medical curriculum. Our constant efforts and partnership with Jamia Hamdard University (JHU) and The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) have made us a strong voice in the Indian Subcontinent advocating for the provisioning of affordable, accessible, and standardized Transgender Healthcare.
We now need your input and support for helping us to bridge the knowledge gap and overcome the lack of trained human resources by offering the WPATH Global Education Institute (GEI) Certified Training Courses on the “Best Practices in Transgender Healthcare” to professionals and community members in the Indian Subcontinent. We aspire to create a "Community Cadre of care providers" who would be visible in each stratum of Transgender Healthcare Delivery. The Conference Secretariat has put together an array of speakers of both National and International repute for you, however, the success of the conference would depend on your active participation in the deliberations with people, who have lived-in experience, Professionals working in the field of Transgender Healthcare, Researchers from both Medical and Social Sciences stream, Students, Allies, Support Groups and Officials from Government and Non-Government Organizations entrusted with provisioning of welfare to the Transgender and Gender Diverse Individuals.
So please block the dates, register for the conference, and make your travel plans.
