The Accord Alliance (AA) is a voluntary organization whose mission is to promote comprehensive and integrated approaches to healthcare that enhance the health and well-being of people and families affected by disorders of sex development (DSD) by fostering collaboration among all stakeholders. Accord Alliance provides a web-based clearinghouse of educational and informational resources to meet diverse stakeholder information needs and support the healthcare decision-making processes of providers, patients, parents, payers, and researchers working to improve health care for DSD. They are establishing collaborative relationships with emerging interdisciplinary DSD teams and developing a transferable model of care, clinical guidelines and protocols, and decision aids to support providers in their efforts to deliver culturally competent, patient-centered care that engages the patient and family in understanding DSD and managing healthcare and social support services. Accord Alliance encourages rapid identification and sharing of lessons learned and best-practice approaches across their collaborative teams and other emerging teams by supporting symposiums, webinars and other means of information sharing. DSD, also commonly referred to as "intersex", is a grouping of congenital conditions in which development of chromosomal, gonadal, or anatomic sex is atypical.
