Performance Improvement 2001. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health: Findings and Concerns


This project developed a discussion paper that addresses health and health care issues for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) populations. The report discusses the lack of systematic information on the health of GLBT populations, and addresses what are called threshold issues for these groups, including the public health infrastructure, access to quality health services, health communication, and educational and community-based programs. Also reviewed are disease/condition-specific concerns of GLBT populations and other issues such as barriers to care. The report concludes with a review of the methodological challenges to studying Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender health.
