TVT Legal and Health Care Mapping
Transgender Legal and Healthcare Mapping

This 2012 map, produced by the Transrespect versus Transphobia Worldwide (TvT) group, provides an overview of the human rights situation of trans persons in different parts of the world and develops useful data and advocacy tools for international institutions, human rights organizations, the trans movement and the general public. It is a comparative, ongoing qualitative-quantitative research project conducted by TGEU’s TvT team in close cooperation with 18 partner organizations and numerous trans activists and researchers in all six world regions. The data collected are compiled and updated periodically and can be viewed in detail in English and Spanish on the TvT website: www.transrespect-transphobia.org The tables visualise transspecific and trans-inclusive legislations and how they are enacted in actual practice. They list law proposals that challenge existing measures and serve to indicate existing trans activism. They provide information on legal measures that criminalize trans people, showing important differences between criminalization and actual prosecution. The tables also give a first insight into trans people‘s health care situation.
