Since 2015, policies in favor of intersex people have been coordinated by the Ministry for Family Affairs, Integration and the Greater Region.
These policies are part of the tradition of non-discrimination and diversity policies. They are part of policies in favor of LGBTI people (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex). Even if the realities of life for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people are different from each other, these people most often have to face the same experience, namely discrimination.
On July 13, 2018, the government adopted the first plan d'action national pour la promotion des droits des personnes lesbiennes, gays, bisexuelles, transgenres et intersexes (national action plan to promote the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people). A chapter of the plan is entirely dedicated to the situation of intersex people. It defines five objectives and eighteen concrete actions to ensure equal rights for intersex people.
The objectives are:
- Strengthen national legislation prohibiting discrimination.
- Respect the rights to physical integrity, self-determination and the principle of free and informed consent in matters of health.
- Respect the right to privacy and self-determination of intersex people in terms of civil status and legal recognition.
- Support intersex people.
- Increase the awareness of the general public.
