Abstract

The World Professional Association for Transgender Health's (WPATH, formerly the Harry Benjamin International Gender Dysphoria Association) Standards of Care (SOC), Version 6, is in the process of revision. In considering the next revision of the SOC, a number of articles were commissioned to examine various parts of the current WPATH SOC and review the literature pertaining to those sections. These papers were designed to (a) review the evidence (and provide us with references); (b) point out where research is lacking and needed; and (c) make possible recommendations (significant and cosmetic) to the SOC based upon new evidence. This article introduces the fourth set of articles pertaining to medical and therapeutic approaches to treatment.
