The WHO sought to change its terminology from "transsexualism" to "gender incongruence", according to Reed, because the latter helped express "a discrepancy between a person's experienced gender identity and their body".
The rationale being that while evidence is now clear that it is not a mental disorder, and indeed classifying it in this can cause enormous stigma for people who are transgender, there remain significant health care needs that can best be met if the condition is coded under the ICD.
Before 2016, the World Health Organization referred to transgenderism as "transexualism", but changed to gender incongruence to "a discrepancy between a person's experienced gender identity and their body".
Human rights and LGBT activists hailed the decision, noting that labeling trans people as having a pathological condition contributed to stigmatization, and in some cases, limited health resources.
Several countries have already taken steps to reclassify transgenderism and take it off the list of mental disorders, including France and Denmark.
