Four Corners on ABC – How to care for the increasing number of young people struggling with their gender is the subject of heated global debate.

At the heart of that debate is whether medical interventions, including puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, should be administered to young people.

The fight is now boiling over in Australia among frontline clinicians and is playing out dramatically at Westmead children’s hospital in Sydney.

This week on Four Corners, RN Breakfast presenter Patricia Karvelas breaks open the feud over transgender youth healthcare.

Patricia and the team deftly navigate polarized arguments and interrogate scientific research in a quest for answers about what the best model of care is.

Along the way they meet young people who are transitioning and speak to parents desperate to get help for their children who are in distress, as well as clinicians from both sides of the debate who are daring to speak out.

Four Corners sensitively tackles what has become akin to a culture war.

Blocked reported by Patricia Karvelas goes to air on Monday 10th July at 8.30pm on ABC TV and and ABC iview.
