SOCIAL PROTECTION AND ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE FOR TRANSGENDER PEOPLE IN KOSOVO

In the last couple of years the predicament of the LGBT community has come to light and the issues faced by the community are being discussed more openly. Transgender persons are just one part of that community and due to a lack of understanding they remain as individuals who are misunderstood and are likely to face discrimination in different spheres of life.

It is with such a situation and conditions in mind that this research was commissioned. It considers the different elements that make up the umbrella term transgender, as well as the legal framework, the experiences of some transgender persons (albeit limited), as well social protection and access to healthcare.
