Transgender individuals will never again be named having a psychological issue by the World Health Organization.

WHO authorities casted a ballot to move the term they use for transgender individuals – sex incongruence – from its psychological issue part to its sexual wellbeing section in the eleventh modification of its International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-11), CNNreported.

The term sexual orientation incongruence is utilized by the WHO to depict individuals whose sex personality is not the same as the sex they were allocated during childbirth, CNN announced.

The new characterization for transgender individuals is relied upon to improve their social acknowledgment while as yet furnishing them with access to significant wellbeing assets, the WHO said a year ago when it declared the arranged change.

Sexual orientation incongruence “was taken out from the psychological wellness issue since we had a superior understanding this wasn’t really an emotional well-being condition, and leaving it there was causing shame,” Dr. Lale Say, organizer of WHO’s Adolescents.
