They will be receiving hormone and psychological treatment in all the healthcare centers under the umbrella of the Costa Rican Department of Social Security, after having reached an agreement with the organization’s management board.

He states that the department of Social Security should set aside the worker funds for the poorest communities like the indigenous population.

The department has agreed to provide the transsexual community with medical assistance.

Around 100 transsexual or transgender people will be given medical treatment in the country.
