Health care of gender-incongruent persons deserves optimization. The new World Health Organization ICD-11, introduced this year, classifies gender-incongruence to « conditions related to sexual health », and not anymore to « mental and behavioral disorders ». From an endocrine perspective, gender-affirming hormonal treatment induces physical changes consistent with gender identity, but good-quality, long follow-up studies concerning efficacy and safety are needed. Improvements in training of medical professionals as well as a specialized multidisciplinary approach are important measures to be taken.
