INFORMED CONSENT for ACCESS TO TRANS HEALTH
ICATH is a collaborative project supported by advocates, allies and providers.
ICATH promotes the use of informed consent as a recognized standard of care to support the ultimate well-being and autonomy for people who are transgender, intersex, and gender non-conforming.
The ICATH model reflects the basic human right to self-actualization.
ICATH is not an institution, an agency or an organization: Informed Consent is a standard of care that is acknowledged and honored by medical providers around the world.
promotes a departure from a system that uses the Gender Dysphoria diagnosis, formally known at Gender Identity Disorder, as a means for accessing gender-confirming health care.
