About the project

This is one of a cluster of international projects focusing on intersex or diverse sex development.

In this project we will interview:

  • young people (aged 16-25) whose sex development has been different from others

  • parents with experience of raising a child whose sex development has been different from others

Objectives

The goal of the research is to inform health professionals about the experiences of young people and their parents.

Outcomes

We hope this research will contribute to improving care for young people and their families.
