Transgender Care

The AUA is committed to providing access to a safe and inclusive health care space to support the well-being of all youth who identify as transgender. The AUA is committed to the principle that medical decision-making for transgender children is the responsibility of parents acting in their child's best interest to ensure their physical and mental health, safety and well-being, and that consultation with medical professionals and education via medically safe (respected, peer-reviewed) resources must not be legislated or criminalized. AUA members are also committed to protecting the patient-physician relationship and ensuring each patient and their families receive the best possible individualized medical care, which includes establishing and working with teams comprising a variety of experts to provide patients and their families with the best options for both support and care.
