The ongoing crisis in Ukraine has resulted in need for immediate action to address the needs both of a significant population of Ukrainians fleeing the fighting as well as for those who are staying in Ukraine. Within both of these populations, trans and intersex people can be found, and their unique healthcare needs must be taken into account in the humanitarian responses. The purpose of this briefing is to describe the medical needs most common among trans and intersex people, including the medications that they will need, and to document emerging issues in Ukraine and surrounding countries on these issues.
