Researchers from the Faculty of Medical Sciences, The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, in collaboration with Butterfly Barbados (a local transgender civil society organisation), conducted a qualitative research project exploring the views and perceptions of medical educators regarding transgender health in March 2021.

The work was supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Small Grants Programme and sought to identify ways to expand transgender health coverage in Caribbean medical curricula and improve transgender care delivery.

The findings will be used to inform curriculum planning and development at Cave Hill in the coming academic year. For further information, contact Dr Michael Campbell –
