At the end of the last decade, scholars, advocates, clinicians and policy experts from around Australia came together to identify a program of sexual health research responsive to the needs of trans and gender diverse people. In this presentation, two of this program's architects will discuss the advancement of those efforts thus far and look towards what is needed over the next decade in terms of research, policy and planning to enhance the sexual health of Australia's trans and gender diverse communities.
