A new organization called The Society for Evidence based Gender Medicine (SEGM ) has just been presented with scientists, doctors and researchers from different English-speaking countries (USA, Canada, New Zealand, England, Australia, Ireland), and some from Sweden and Norway, various of which they offer – with courage, it seems that it must be said – their name and photograph.
SEGM is an international group of over 100 clinicians and researchers concerned about the lack of quality evidence for the use of hormonal and surgical interventions as first-line treatment for young people with gender dysphoria. SEGM represents expertise from a range of clinical disciplines.
One of Us applauds this birth, as well as the initiatives at the service of science, truth and reason.
SEGM objectives include evaluating current interventions for gender dysphoria, providing balanced evidence summaries, promoting the development of effective and supportive psychosocial approaches for the care of young people with gender dysphoria and generating good, answerable questions for research.
SEGM is free from political, ideological, religious, or financial influences.
