Since January 2021, Trans United Europe has started a collaboration with the Center for Sexual Health of the Amsterdam Public Health Services (GGD Amsterdam). This allows us to offer more care. At the Trans United Clinic, we now offer:
- Hormone support
- STI and HIV screening
- Hepatitis B vaccination
- PrEP consultations
- SENSE consultation (appointment where you can ask any questions about sexual health, gender identity, sexuality, and sexual boundaries)
You can follow the Trans United Clinic on Instagram
A sexual health appointment is available for everyone from the trans community. The team of the Center for Sexual Health has received training from the team of the Trans United Clinic, and they pay special attention to respect name, identity, pronouns, and personal boundaries of the trans community. For regular STI/HIV screening (if you don’t have symptoms), the nurse will only draw blood. All other tests can be done through self-testing, so no need to undress for a nurse or doctor. You can plan your sexual health appointment at the Center for Sexual Health through the following link: PLAN APPOINTMENT.
If you don’t feel safe in the waiting room of the regular clinic, it is also possible to plan a sexual health appointment in the Transgender Safe Space (T-house). If you want to schedule an sexual health appointment in the T-house, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and specify that it is for a sexual health appointment.
We realize that many people need access to hormone support, due to the long waiting lists at the Dutch gender teams. Unfortunately, our team is too small to solve this nationwide problem, despite our desire to help as many people as possible and no matter how painful we find it that we have to limit our services.
The Trans United Clinic is specifically intended for people from the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (see area image) who, in addition to their gender identity, face additional barriers to care.
Persons who are eligible for an intake are:
- Persons with refugee status, in asylum procedure, or undocumented.
- People who are homeless, or who are staying in a crisis shelter.
- Individuals who are migrant or children of migrants.
- Persons who are active as sex worker
If you belong to one or more of these groups, we can invite you for an intake appointment. Send an email with your details and which group(s) you are part of to: email@example.com.
Like other care providers, we are also dealing with a lot of applications. We aim to plan an introductory appointment within the first 3 months of application, so you hear about the services that are available for the trans community at Trans United Europe and the Center for Sexual Health. Our current waiting time for a medical appointment about hormone support can however range from 6 to 12 months.
