Doctors Day: Trans doctors' need for health equity gives birth to Trans Care India; platform to make medical curriculum inclusive

It is said that a sign of a good civilization is how it treats its weakest. Dr. Aqsa Shaikh feels that the sign of a good healthcare system is how it cares for its most vulnerable patients; in this context, transgender patients. On National Doctors' Day, IBTimes focuses on this small yet growing community of Trans doctors and medical professionals and how a public health research NGO Sangath has joined hands with doctors to pave way for better means of Trans care in the country.
