      1. Vocab is sponsoring
      2. Intention is an informative document - international realm to describe sex gender types. Goal is to have well described context for the use of Gender and Sex identity. For example, gender identity is one of the sex identity type. Sex values are not gender identity. Some times a person in one context is described as a male and in another context is called a female. Trying to fix a "clinical contexts" that will provide names, descriptions, values that are appropriate for use, if context allows for unknown, other; context may be closed; context may be open; context may be permanent; etc.

      9. Question: mixing clinical sex and HL7 administrative gender becomes messy - is this the direction of this project? 
        1. Community have not done a good job of clearly identifying these contexts. Doing this is not good enough. The community feels this need to be improved. Identifying places where the existing model need to change. 
        2. Concern with the clinical sex side - that this harmonization project will result in a mix value set that include both administrative and clinical sex values. Clinical sex is used to assess a disorder. Admin sex is used to room a patient. WIll this result in a valueset with a mix of both?
          1. No. Whole point of the project is to not mix the two concepts. 
        3. Is there active engagement from neo-natologists? Mike Padula knows about this project. We need folks who sees babies. Michael Tan can assist with this by putting it forward to pe.
