Worried about stigmatisation and discrimination against intersex persons in society, the Centre for Healthcare Development and Youth Empowerment, (Intersex Nigeria) has called on the government to intervene with policies and programmes to checkmate any form of discrimination. “Intersex” is an umbrella term for people born with sex traits that do not fit binary medical definitions of male or female sexual or reproductive anatomy. Intersex populations globally are born with these differences in sex traits or may develop them during puberty or later in adulthood. Obioma Chukwuike, Executive Director and Founder of Intersex Nigeria while speaking at the Global Intersex Day marked every October 26 pleaded with government to protect intersex people from bullying and discrimination.
