GLMA Adopts Resolution on Care for Children with DSD

In what is believed to be a first for a US-based health professional association, GLMA recently revised its position statement on care for children with differences of sex development (DSD) to call for delay in any medically unnecessary surgical intervention until the patient can provide consent/assent to the treatment. The revised policy statement is being released to coincide with activities related to the 20th anniversary of Intersex Awareness Day. To see the full position statement, visit here.

GLMA also joined many other organizations in signing a joint resolution “calling for intersex people to have control over their medical decisions, to be free from medically unnecessary interventions, and to have access to psychological and peer support.” To see this joint resolution, visit here.
