This study aimed to analyze how the Brazilian Ministry of Health (MS) is implementing the Sex Reassignment Process (SRP) in the Unified Health System (SUS), through research of public domain official documents, systematization of surgery's quantitative data and analysis of meeting reports of the LGBT Health Technical Committee (CTSLGBT) of the MS. We conducted exploratory research combining quantitative and qualitative methods, using as methodological basis the normative proposal of health programs and systems evaluation study. The study resulted in the total data calculation of sex reassignment surgeries performed by the SUS (2008-2016), which highlight no deaths and unequal regional access; and in the monitoring of the implementation of actions of the National LGBT Health Policy by a specific committee appointed by the MS. Despite considerable progress, challenges remain. Currently, the most threatening hurdle is the possibility of a setback imposed by conservative sectors from the Executive and Legislative branches. Therefore, the visibility of achievements is a decisive step toward maintaining and enhancing SRP in the SUS.
