We notice that many people need access to hormone support, when observing the enormous waiting lists in the Dutch gender teams. Unfortunately, our team is too small to solve this nationwide problem, despite our desire to help as many people as possible and no matter how painful we find it that we have to limit our services.
The Trans United Clinic is specifically intended for people from the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (see area image below) who don’t have access to regular care because of extra barriers.
Persons who are eligible for an intake at the Trans United Kliniek are:
- Persons with refugee status, in asylum procedure, undocumented, or rejected asylum seekers
- Persons who are homeless, or who are staying in a crisis shelter
- Persons who are often excluded or stigmatized for other reasons, for example because of skin color, religion, (bi)cultural background, physical disability, HIV status, language barrier, or because they are active as sex workers.
Like other facilities, we are also dealing with a lot of registrations. Our current waiting time for an intake interview is 4 months.
