The templates in this guide detail document markup standards for describing sex and gender in clinical documents.

This guide is part of a larger Gender Harmony Project (GHP), which provides definitive guidance on how to exchange clinical sex and gender affirming information using HL7 models. The GHP improved upon an initial sex and gender representation logical model and produced aligned approaches to sex and gender representation within each of the HL7 product families, with additions and changes to FHIR R5, HL7 V2.9.1, and the set of templates in this guide.
