Transgender is not mental disorder but sexual health condition: WHO

Date: 01 June 2019 Tags: International Events
  • World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that it will no longer categorise transgender as “mental disorder” from its diagnostic manual.
  • In this regard, it has revised International Classification of Diseases (known as ICD-11) to classify gender identity disorders as gender incongruence.
  • Gender incongruence has now been listed under sexual health conditions.  It makes it now clear that gender incongruence is not a mental disorder.
  • This decision will have liberating effect on transgender people worldwide.
