The Trans Health and Cancer Care Study was conducted in 2018-19 and involved 537 trans and gender diverse (TGD) people from across Australia over the age of 18. Results of the study highlight ongoing challenges faced by TGD persons in Australia in their experiences of gender affirmation, accessing healthcare and their awareness and participation in cancer care. Overall, considerable work across practice, policy and research, remains for Australia to provide equitable experiences in health and cancer care for this community.
