Country’s First Transgender Clinic in Hyderabad
Transgenders have come a long way from being considered a bad element of the society to be able to do everything and to start a clinic to treat their people.

A lot of awareness has been created of late about the transgender community, and many measures are being taken to safeguard their interests and requirements. One such move was to start two exclusive trans clinics in Hyderabad. While one has been operational for some time, one has been started only recently. 


The whole idea is to provide spaces for trans people to call them ‘their’ spaces so that they can open up about various issues. The clinics are part of the central government’s initiative to start such clinics across India, and Hyderabad is just the beginning. All this is in accordance with the Transgender Persons Act, 2019. After the pilot test in Hyderabad, similar clinics will be established in the metros.


 According to trans activist Rachana Mudraboyina, the reason for Hyderabad being chosen for the purpose was due to the high incidence levels of HIV in the city. While the national average stood at 3.13, Hyderabad’s average was at 6.47. The objective is to be an AIDS-free nation by 2030, and for this, India has been in association with National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO).


 While one clinic is at Narayanaguda, another hospital is at Jeedimetla. To spread the word among the trans community, various messages are being spread across the city and other cities too. Incidentally, the clinic is also run by trans people. In fact, the entire staff, from doctors Dr. Prachi to Dr. Ruth to support staff, is made up of trans people. Apart from dealing with health issues, the clinics also act as counseling centers, hormone therapy, mental health help, and other issues trans people face.
