State Department of Health is studying the creation of an outpatient referral center aimed at serving the public LGBT, especially transsexuals and transvestites.

The Ministry of Health of Paraná studying the creation of a referral center ambulatory facing the LGBT public service, particularly transsexuals and transvestites. The matter was discussed this week with representatives of various organizations representing this population.

As reported by the folder will be created a working group to draft the initial proposal. "The reference center whose location is not yet defined shall provide comprehensive care to the patient, taking into account the particularities and diseases that mostly affect the public. Tests and rapid tests will also be offered," said Secretary of Health, Michele Caputo Neto.

Health professionals municipalities will also be trained to provide appropriate assistance to the public on LGBT Basic Health Units (BHU). According to Liza Minelly, the National Network of Trans People, we need to eliminate bias in health services.

Care should be humane and respect the rights of citizens, regardless of their sexual orientation, he said.

Another issue discussed at the hearing was the accreditation of a service to perform Parana reassignment surgeries, known as gender reassignment. In Paraná, the person who has an interest in surgery should start treatment at a clinic in your county, but the surgical procedure occurs in other states such as Rio Grande do Sul, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Goiás

To the President of Transgrupo Marcela Prado, Carla Amaral, without a service accredited in Paraná, access to this type of surgery is difficult, even with all the cost of the trip being paid by the state. There are several disorders that could be avoided if we had the surgery in Paraná. With the support of the state hope that happens soon, he said. Representatives of the three spheres of government, as well as organizations representing LGBT people, should meet in November to discuss the issue of accreditation.

Since 2008, when the Ministry of Health included a sex change surgeries available in the list of the National Health System, 17 lawsuits were filed in the state. Before surgery, the patient undergoes a preparation period that lasts at least two years and involves including psychological care.
