For the first time in the country, the Kerala government will implement a “Queer-friendly hospital initiative” to protect the rights of the queer, transgender community and to ensure healthcare services for them in hospitals across the State. Health Minister Veena George said in a statement here on Monday that the Health department intended it to be a initiative wherein all hospital care and services would be ensured without any discrimination to the queer/transgender community. In the first phase, the initiative will be implemented in Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, Thrissur and Kozhikode districts.
