Pathways to Transgender Healthcare Services

Nau mai, haere mai.

Ki a koutou ngā takatāpui, ki ngā tangata whakawāhine, ki ngā tangata ira tāne, ki ngā tangata i waenganui o Tāmaki Makaurau. Tēnā koutou katoa.

Kia orana, Talofa lava, Mālō e lelei, Fakaalofa atu. Talofa ni and Ni sa bula vinaka.

Hauora Tāhine, pathways to transgender healthcare is the collective name for a number of secondary health services (including Auckland Sexual Health) that provide gender-affirming healthcare for transgender and non-binary clients across the Auckland region. 

Auckland Sexual Health welcomes all transgender and non-binary people.

  • Our team provides care for clients aged 18 years and older at clinics across Auckland.
  • We work with you to establish your transition-related health goals and provide support around an individualised health plan.

We recognise that you are the expert around your own gender, whether you're a binary trans person, non-binary, transsexual, agender, whakawāhine, tangata ira tāne, tāhine, fa'afafine, fakaleiti, akava’ine, genderqueer or however you describe yourself.

We offer

  • Exploration of gender identity
  • Social transition support
  • Family/whānau support
  • Initiation of hormonal therapies
  • Referral for other gender-affirming healthcare including fertility preservation, voice therapy, surgical services

The team send your GP an outline of your management plan and supports your primary care health team to provide ongoing maintenance therapy once established. Your GP may refer you back to the service for further support if your hormone therapy needs to be reviewed or you need to access further gender-affirming health care.
