Project’s Final Conference

The Closing Seminar was successfully held on Wednesday 19th January 2022 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in St. Julian’s and also streamed live through zoom. All members of the lead project team and project partners with the exception of MUMN attended this seminar together with the physical and virtual participation of another hundred and thirteen attendees. 

Several speakers addressed the event including European Commissioner for Equality, Hon Dr Helena Dalli, Maltese Minister for Equality, Research, and Innovation Hon Dr Owen Bonnici, Director of the HRD, Michael Camilleri and representative of the Office of the Chief Medical Officer within the ODPM, Dr Alexia Bezzina.

This was followed by a detailed presentation on the Transform project by the project leaders and Head of the SOGIGESC Unit at the HRD, Gabriella Calleja during which the achievements of this project were highlighted.

The seminar also involved the participation of three keynote speakers, Michelle Cilia from the Gender Wellbeing Clinic in Malta, Prof Joz Motmans from the Transgender Info-point in Ghent and Dr Cianan Russell from ILGA-Europe.

The Keynote speeches and panels that followed focused on two main themes:
  • ​Trajectories in Transgender Healthcare Provision in Malta & Europe and the Challenges to inclusive health care provision posed by anti-trans movements across Europe; and
  • Challenges to LGBTIQ inclusive health care provision posed by anti-trans movements across Europe.

The project has several foreign and international partners, and as such, they were expected to take part in this event physically. Unfortunately, because of travel restrictions due to the pandemic, they could not be present physically at the event but nonetheless, were able to participate and intervene virtually.
