This briefing focuses on the diagnosis of ‘gender incongruence’ in the current ICD-revision in the framework of the World Health Organization (WHO)[1].

The International Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) is a compilation of health related categories used for:

  • Diagnosis
  • Monitoring and statistics
  • Public policy
  • Access to healthcare
  • Reimbursement

The currently valid ICD-10 was adopted in 1990. Its revision process has started some years ago and might only be finalized in 2019 with the final approval by the World Health Assembly.
