ILGA-Europe and Transgender Europe have been informed that the Serbian Parliament is about to reform the law on Registry Books, with major implications for trans people.
The World Health Organization (WHO) announced yesterday (18 June 2018) the completion of the ICD-11 and deleted all trans-related categories from the ICD Chapter on Mental and Behavioural Disorders.
On 21 March 2018, the Swedish Parliament took a historic decision that trans people who were forcibly sterilised (between 1972 and 2013) should be paid compensation.
The Greek parliament has voted to approve legislation on legal gender recognition in a plenary vote today (10 October 2017).
The French parliament has voted to introduce a legal gender recognition procedure that is free from sterilisation and medicalisation.

In 2015, ILGA-Europe started its new programme Creating Opportunities, designed to support organisations that face threats to LGBTI rights in their countries, or significant opportunities to affirm or strengthen them.
At its 66th general assembly, held in Moscow, the World Medical Association, an international organisation representing doctors, adopted new guidelines aimed at increasing the knowledge and sensitivity of doctors towards trans people.
