Who we are

Società italiana Genere, Identità e Salute (SIGIS)

The Italian Society for Gender, Identity and Health (SIGIS) is a professional non-profit association created in July, 2021 by health professionals committed to the promotion of the physical, mental and social wellbeing of people with gender incongruence and intersex conditions.

Our code of conduct

All members must adhere to the SIGIS code of conduct. This code of conduct is based on the principle that gender incongruence is not a form of illness or mental issue, but a normal result of psycho-sexual development.

Harassment or discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated.

If the Association members or those who collaborate with the Association violate this code of conduct, the Association can undertake any action the Board deems necessary, including, but not limited to, warning the author of the offense, suspension or expulsion from the Association; notifying professional orders and expulsion from every event without any reimbursement.
