Trailblazing Mexican trans clinic fights prejudice

When Sandra Montiel's friend needed medical care after cosmetic treatment went wrong she was turned away by seven hospitals - until she visited Mexico's first dedicated public clinic for trans patients. The facility is the first of its kind in the country and a rarity in Latin America, where transgender patients usually have to rely on private hospitals. The clinic aims to end the confusion and rejection that the community often faces when seeking medical attention, offering services including psychological support and hormonal treatment.
