Ethical Guidelines for Professionals


Establishing Standards of Care 

WPATH has established internationally accepted Standards of Care (SOC) for the treatment of individuals with gender dysphoria.  These internationally accepted guidelines are designed to promote the health and welfare of transgender, transsexual and gender variant  persons in all cultural settings. The Standards of Care are updated and revised as new scientific information becomes available.
