Advancing Health Equity for Intersex Individuals

March 13, 2023

Dear Admiral Levine:
"The Endocrine Society appreciates the opportunity to provide feedback to the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH) as it develops a report on promising practices for advancing health equity for intersex individuals. Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest and largest organization of scientists devoted to hormone research and physicians who care for people with hormone-related conditions. Among our 18,000 members are experts in the research and care of intersex individuals, individuals with disorders of sex development (DSD), and transgender individuals, and we advocate to improve, expand, and protect access to care for these patient populations. The Endocrine Society applauds OASH for taking steps to ensure access to affirming, high-quality care for intersex people who live in America."
